ROSS, N.D. — A North Dakota company has been cited for nine safety violations in the death of a worker who was cleaning the inside of a crude oil tanker.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing $28,000 in fines for Plains Trucking LLC in Ross. The company has two weeks to pay the fines or contest the citations and penalties.

OSHA officials say the violations included failure to evaluate the need for personal protective equipment, lack of machine guarding on pulleys and belts, use of electrical lighting that was not improved, and failure to compile a list of chemicals.

The incident happened on March 27 while the worker lowered a treble light into the tanker. The light was not approved for the conditions.

Company officials were not immediately available for comment.
