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.
