Cincinnati-based uniform company Cintas will pay an employee’s widow for her husband’s workplace death.

Eleazar Torres-Gomez was killed at the firm’s Tulsa, Okla., plant on March 6, 2007, when he fell into a dryer while trying to clear a conveyor belt jammed with wet laundry. Cintas had already paid a $2.67 million fine to OSHA over the incident.

The settlement came four days before the case was set to go to trial. Details of the settlement—including its amount—were not released.
