    Will OSHA Refer BP For Criminal Prosecution? - Occupational Hazards
    The company agreed to pay a record-breaking $21.4 million OSHA penalty to settle an investigation of a March 23 explosion at its Texas City, Texas, refinery that killed 15 workers and injured more than 170 others. The settlement also obliges BP to undertake a number of safety improvements to the facility.

    The enormity of the unusual pre-citation settlement fine is leading legal experts and the United Steelworkers (USW) to wonder if the agreement contains some hidden benefits for the company, including a promise that OSHA will not make a referral.
