Stavis Seafoods, Boston, MA
The Seaport seafood company where a worker died amid a massive ammonia leak Wednesday has been cited in the past for safety violations, some involving its refrigeration system.
In 2009, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Stavis Seafoods for safety violations related to its refrigeration system. The company was also fined by OSHA in 2000.
“OSHA’s inspection found the initial evaluation of hazards associated with the refrigeration system had not been conducted; standard operating procedures had not been developed for all system activities or were incomplete,” OSHA’s 2009 statement read.
