A refining company in the middle of a controversial Commission decision on occupational health and health surveys has filed a request for review with the 5th American Circuit Court.
Wynnewood, Oklahoma-based Wynnewood Refining Co. LLC and its successors are requesting a review of that part of the Commission's decision on March 28 which considers "the application of the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Process Safety Management Standard … to" Wickes "steamers located in Wynnewood's Wynnewood Oil Refinery , Oklahoma, "the petition, filed May 28, says.
Specifically, the audit commission confirmed several security quotes that came from a fatal oil refinery explosion in 2012, which categorizes the infringements according to OSHA's process management standard, despite the fact that the explosion occurred at one of the refiner's boilers, a place of operation where security and legal experts say it is usually not included in process safety management.
The audit commission confirmed a total of 12 quotes and a fine of $ 58,000 against Wynnewood. Two workers died because of the explosion, which an investigator tested was due to workers wrongly starting a boiler, according to documents in Secretary of Labor by Wynnewood Refining Co. LLC.
The lawyers involved could not immediately be reached for comment.
