OSHA fines company for serious explosion

OSHA has fined a Millersville-based company for 12 violations that it says contributed to a fatal explosion this summer.

A 28 year-old father of three from Nashville died from injuries he sustained in the explosion and another man suffered severe burns. A total of $46,600 in fines has been brought against the company that sells and builds dredging equipment.

In July, a flash fire explosion was started by a light that ignited paint vapors inside a pontoon boat workers were painting. OSHA found many health and safety violations, such as inadequate ventilation, not training employees safety duties in confined spaces, failing to use explosion-proof lighting, among others.
