U.S. Department of Labor Secures Settlement Agreement with Bostik Inc
May 17 12
The U.S. Department of Labor has secured a settlement agreement with Bostik Inc., to resolve litigation stemming from citations issued by the department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration for safety violations following a March 2011 explosion. OSHA cited Bostik in September after a six-month investigation found numerous violations of the agency's process safety management standard, which is a detailed set of requirements and procedures that employers must follow to proactively address hazards associated with processes and equipment involving large amounts of hazardous chemicals. In this case, the chemical was acetone, which was used in a PSM standard-covered process known as direct solvation. According to the settlement, Bostik has taken and continues to take corrective action to address deficiencies in its PSM program and enhance the program's effectiveness, and also agrees to submit proof of abatement to OSHA. Bostik paid a fine of $600,000 and is no longer using the direct solvation process at the Middleton facility. OSHA originally proposed $917,000 in fines.
