2008United States of America : A preventable explosion at an Imperial Sugar refinery in Georgia killed 14.PR Newswire
2008United States of America : Imperial Sugar Co. should face fines of more than $8.7 million for violations at two plants, including a Georgia facility where an explosion killed 13 people. The fines include $5 million for the explosion near Savannah on Feb. 7 and $3.7 million for the plant in Gramercy, La.OSHA investigators concluded the explosion was most likely caused when a large bucket used to haul sugar in a silo elevator broke loose and struck the metal siding, causing a spark that ignited sugar dust accumulated beneath the 100-foot silos. The agency said its investigation uncovered company audits, insurance records and other documents showing Imperial Sugar had been warned about combustible dust hazards in its plants since 2002. Its inspection of the Louisiana plant a month after the Georgia blast found workers wading through sugar dust up to 4 feet deep. "This catastrophic accident could have been prevented if Imperial Sugar had complied with existing OSHA safety and health standards," OSHA chief Edwin Foulke said at a news conference in Savannah. OSHA found 120 violations against the Georgia plant, including 61 considered egregious. In Louisiana, Imperial Sugar was cited for 91 additional violations, including 47 egregious ones. Many violations were similar to those in Georgia.AP
