LIMA — Husky’s Lima Refinery and International Tank Service will not be cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in connection with the Nov. 5 death of a worker at the refinery.



Adrian John Flores, 59, died after falling from a telescoping lift inside the empty, above-ground storage tank. He was near the top of the 56-foot-tall tank when he fell.



Flores was an outside contractor employed by the Lima-based International Tank Service.



OSHA spokesman Brad Mitchell said both companies had proper procedures in place. Flores was wearing a safety harness and lanyard to attach to the lift, but they were not attached, Mitchell said.



Health Safety and Environmental Director Paul Logsdon said Wednesday that Flores was a safety leader among employees.



“For some reason he just didn’t hook up that time,” Logsdon said.
