MOSS POINT — A federal safety agency has proposed fines of $79,200 for Omega Protein Inc. for 25 safety and health violations found after the death of a worker who got caught in a rotating screw conveyor.
The Sun Herald reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration released its findings yesterday from an inspection in April after 24-year-old Christopher Hebert died from blood loss at the Moss Point plant.
Omega Protein has 15 business days to comply with OSHA’s findings, request an informal conference with Payne or contest the findings to the OSHA Review Commission.
Spokesman Ben Landry said the company is reviewing the findings and has not decided if it will contest the citations or penalties.
