VALLEY -- The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Bushnell Illinois Tank Co., which operates as Schuld/Bushnell in Valley, with eight safety and health violations based on a follow-up inspection for hazards associated with workers who enter and work in permit-required confined spaces. Proposed penalties total $116,270.

OSHA initiated the follow-up inspection at Schuld/Bushnell in January to determine whether hazardous conditions continued to exist after a January 2011 inspection resulted in citations of OSHA's permit-required confined space standard. The standard establishes procedures to protect workers who must enter, work in or exit spaces with configurations that hinder their activities.

OSHA found four repeat violations, two serious violations, a willful violation and one less-than-serious violation.

The company has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and penalties to comply with the citations or contest them.
