Quality Pork Processors, Inc., in Austin, Minn., has reached a settlement with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The Austin Daily Herald reports OSHA cited the meatpacking plant for serious safety violations in April after a routine inspection and proposed nearly $12,000 in fines.
"We often reduce penalties if they agree to fix it and beef up their training programs for employees," Minnesota OSHA spokesman James Honerman told KTTC-TV.
