OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) - A federal workplace safety agency has cited an industrial laundry in Oak Creek in a worker’s death last summer.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Wednesday it is proposing $41,200 in fines against Crothall Laundry Services.

OSHA says the 34-year-old man was servicing equipment at Crothall on Aug. 13 when a conveyor system propelled him into a dryer and he became trapped. The agency says the man died of his injuries two weeks later.

The Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1or8WiJ ) reports OSHA says the conveyor should have been inoperable during the servicing.

A Crothall representative did not immediately return a phone call for comment Wednesday.
