Wyoming refinery faces significant fine

19 February 2013

The Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed a $259,950 fine for alleged violations it found at the Sinclair Oil refinery near Rawlins, Wyoming, which is "Wyoming's most-fined refinery for safety violations," the Casper Star-Tribune reported.

Sinclair Oil's refinery has been cited by Wyoming OSHA several times in recent years.

The proposed fine involves some previously cited violations and some additional ones for items such as failing to cover open floor holes and have a fire extinguisher at an assigned location.

One of the incidents Wyoming OSHA investigated at the refinery was a May 8, 2012, flash fire that injured four Sinclair employees, three of them seriously, according to the agency.
