Tom Deutscher with OSHA in Bismarck says Nabors Drilling USA LP failed to adhere to safe electrical practices, which resulted in the electrocution of the worker.

OSHA says Nabors has been cited for safety violations relating to electrical equipment in the past. The company has 15 days to respond to the proposed penalties totaling $45,500.

A spokeswoman for Nabors did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
