PASCAGOULA — Mississippi Phosphates Corp. has been cited by the government for 40 safety and health violations following the deaths of two workers in separate incidents at the company’s Pascagoula plant.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration say in a news release it has proposed penalties of $165,900. The company has 10 days to appeal.
On May 22, an operator died after being struck by metal debris when a steam turbine housing ruptured. On June 1, another worker was killed in a similar incident.
OSHA cited the company for three serious safety violations related to the fatalities, including exposing workers to “struck-by” hazards by not protecting them against over pressurization. Other safety violations involved failing to test and inspect pressure relief devices throughout the facility and other issues.
