Welspun: Safety inspectors busy

Posted By on Thu, Dec 23, 2010 at 6:23 AM

Readers yesterday raised questions about safety practices at Welspun, the tube factory near the Little Rock Port whose arrival in Little Rock has been a jewel in the crown of local industrial development. Fox 16 reports that the accident that killed one worker and injured another this week follows multiple adverse findings by federal safety inspectors since the plant opened last year — three complaints and a critical inspection.

Curious: Anybody know why contract labor is employed, rather than direct employees, in routine plant jobs?
