OSHA proposes penalties for Honeywell's Mansfield operation

The Occupational and Health Administration said Monday it cited Honeywell Electronic Chemicals in Mansfield with 10 serious safety and health violations. The agency proposes $53,000 in penalties. About 30 people work at the location on U.S. 287. OSHA does not cite an injury to any workers. Instead, it says the company did not follow OSHA's rules for "process safety management" for a chemical facility, something it says is being emphasized. The company has 15 business days to comply, request a conference with OSHA's Fort Worth area director Jack Rector, or contest the citations. A company representative did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment. For the OSHA citation, Download Here.
