NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. — A Nebraska City meat-processing plant faces a $9,500 fine after being cited by the U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration for alleged safety violations.

OSHA began investigating Cargill Meat Solutions after 49-year-old Timothy Wilson of Nebraska City died on the job in January.

Wilson was mending a cooler when mobile scaffolding he was on toppled over. He died at a hospital.

OSHA says the scaffolding was overloaded and that the plant failed to properly train workers.

The plant has 15 business days to comply or appeal the fine.
