The State

June 18, 1989

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration said it plans to fine Simpson Paper Co.'s Humboldt pulp mill $666,000 for last December's collapse of a 200-ton, high-density wood pulp storage tank that permanently disabled two workers. OSHA officials said an investigation disclosed that the company had information showing that the storage tanks were structurally unsound because of deteriorating steel hoops and that they were filled beyond a safe capacity.
