Labor Department Cites Greenville Contractor

The labor department has cited a Greenville
excavation contractor for exposing workers to hazards. The agency says Hendrix Barnhill sent two employees into an unprotected trench in August as part of construction of a water treatment plant at New River Marine Corps Air Station, even after part of the ditch collapsed following heavy rainfall. Hendrix Barnhill has 15 business days to contest the citations.
