(RICHMOND) - A contractor was fined $24,500 for safety violations after a worker died from a fall at a Richmond factory.

The Richmond Palladium-Item reports 23-year-old Jacob Bugg died June 27 after falling about 40 feet at a Purina animal food plant. Bugg worked for Kansas-based contractor Brewer's Restoration & Coating, which was hired to do maintenance work.

The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration found five violations. The agency says the contractor failed to have a safety system in place, did not train employees properly and did not keep adequate training records.

The cause of Bugg's fall is unknown, because it was not witnessed.
