Underneath it all is an ancient world that's almost invisible, unless you know where to look.

OSHA has announced 59 citations and nearly $1 million in penalties after an investigation into a nitrogen leak at a poultry processing plant that killed six workers and injured at least a dozen others earlier this year.

Pictogram people become unlikely MVPs
