Nearly all of the fines assessed against the Holcim cement plant for the more than 300 safety violations  cited there since 2008 have been paid, according to records from the Mine Safety and Health Administration.



Holcim has paid US$423,000 to date on 311 citations, the records show, while three citations from over a year ago with penalties totaling almost US$2800 are still being contested by the cement giant.



The three citations, all cited at the beginning of 2010, include failure to provide seat belts in haulage trucks and insufficient splices and repairs of power cables.
