A North Dakota company has been cited for nine safety violations in the death of a worker who was cleaning the inside of a crude oil tanker.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says violations against Plains Trucking of Ross, North Dakota, include failure to evaluate the need for personal protective equipment, lack of machine guarding on pulleys and belts, use of electrical lighting that was not improved, and failure to compile a list of chemicals.

OSHA is proposing $28,000 in fines. The incident happened on March 27 while the worker lowered a treble light into the tanker. OSHA says the light was not approved for the conditions.
