WHITEWATER, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin grain company faces a new round of fines stemming from alleged safety violations at its facilities in Whitewater and Genoa City.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the fines Tuesday against Cooperative Plus Inc.
OSHA fined the company almost $375,000, saying inspectors found 25 safety violations. Cooperative Plus was already fined $721,000 earlier this month after a worker was buried up to his chest by frozen soybeans before being rescued four hours later.
A message left Tuesday with the Burlington-based company was not immediately returned.
OSHA says the latest citations are for allegations including failures to test air for hazardous chemicals and failing to provide an adequate emergency plan.
