    OSHA fines against Cintas exceed $3 million with Mobile penalty - By Garry Mitchell, AP
    The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration called for $196,000 in fines, saying it was "disappointed to find so many of the same or similar hazards" at the Mobile plant after a number of safety problems, including the dryer death of a worker in Tulsa, Okla.

    The agency in August proposed $2.78 million in penalties against Cincinnati, Ohio-based Cintas following the death of the Tulsa worker who fell into an industrial dryer. OSHA inspectors also proposed $117,000 in penalties against Cintas for worker safety hazards in Ohio and $13,650 in penalties in Washington state.
