OSHA has cited Steeleville-based Gilster-Mary Lee Corp. for safety violations after a dust ex­­plosion severely burned two employees.

The two maintenance ­workers were performing repairs near machinery that was leaking gran­u­lated sugar when sparks touched off the blast.

The resulting three willful and three serious safety violations forced the company into OSHA’s Severe Vio­lator Enforcement Program, which targets employers with extensive safety-violation records.

Gilster-Mary Lee has racked up 46 OSHA violations since 2002, paying more than $230,000 in penalties.
