• OSHA seeks $41K fine in Export paving roller fatality

    Updated:

    EXPORT, Pa. - Federal workplace safety officials are recommending $41,000 in fines for a western Pennsylvania company where a mechanic was killed when he was pinned by a paving roller.

    Officials at Export Fuel Co., about 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, did not immediately return a call for comment on the penalty proposed Wednesday by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

    Fifty-five-year-old Robert Buskey Jr., of Loyalhanna Township, died while working on the roller which lurched forward onto him.

    OSHA found the company failed to properly train employees on the roller's safe operation, and also cited the company for unrelated hazards that could lead to falling and electrocution.

    Export Fuel provides home heating oil and other products, and is located near Route 66 in Salem Township.
