Tyler Pipe is facing $17,000 in fines from OSHA in the wake of a wall-to-wall inspection conducted last May. The company says the inspection identified no health related issues, and none of the citations were classified as willful or repeat violations. In fact, an OSHA representative said the review found significant improvement, compared to earlier inspections. The company says they will be meeting with OSHA on Friday to discuss these citations and is confident that a resolution will be reached that is acceptable to both parties. Meanwhile, around 500 South Plant employees remain out of work as the company continues to battle air permit problems. No word yet on when that issue will be resolved.
