In June of 2018 a cannabis manufacturing company was cited by Cal/OSHA for 10 violations with over $50,000 in fines. After failing to test the atmosphere inside one of their containers for flammable gases and vapors, an employee using a propane powered extraction machine suffered serious burns when the propane ignited and caused an explosion.
