OSHA fines Wis. company again, this time for $375K


WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin grain company faces a new round of fines, stemming from alleged safety violations at facilities in Whitewater and Genoa City.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the fines Tuesday against Cooperative Plus Inc., based out of Burlington.

The company has been fined nearly $375,000, after OHSA inspectors found a total of 25 safety violations. OHSA says violations include failing to test air for hazardous chemicals and failing to provide an adequate emergency plan.

Earlier this month, Cooperative Plus was fined $721,000 after a worker was buried up to his chest by frozen soybeans before being rescued four hours later.

Cooperative Plus says it takes employee safety seriously and is reviewing the latest allegations.
