Sept. 2009 OSHA Inspection of Ohio Refinery

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited BP North American Inc. and BP-Husky Refining LLC’s refinery in Oregon, Ohio, with 42 alleged willful violations involving the exposure of refinery workers to a variety of hazards. OSHA proposed over $3 million in penalties. The fine resulted from an inspection in September 2009 undertaken pursuant to a 2007 settlement agreement between OSHA and BP. Although the inspection found that BP had complied with the settlement agreement, OSHA found numerous violations at the plant not previously covered by the agreement.
