WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. (AP) - A plastics company in New Jersey has been fined $115,000 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for exposing workers to flammable gas and other hazards.

The agency said Thursday that during a scheduled inspection of Solvay Specialty Polymers’ West Deptford facilities earlier this year, officials found three repeat and eight serious violations.

OSHA says those violations include failure to respond to a compliance audit, failure to review operating procedures to comply with current practice and failure to inspect and test process equipment.

A Solvay spokesman says the company is prepared to contest the citations if their study of the findings deems it necessary.
