DANVILLE, Va. (AP) - Goodyear’s plant in Danville has been fined more than $1 million following recent deaths at its facility.

Media outlets report officials with the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Administration say the fines are a result of safety and health inspections.

Last week, the state agency issued more than 100 violations to the plant, including those related to the April death of Greg Cooper.

Cooper’s death was one of four worker fatalities at the plant in a year.

The facility has already been fined in relation to two of the deaths and is contesting those penalties.

Goodyear Danville Communications Manager Laura Singleton said in a statement Thursday that the company is reviewing the citations and will work with officials “to implement any necessary additional corrective actions” at the plant.
