Wal-Mart builder fined for infractions

A Georgia company was given $30,000 in proposed fines and cited three times by federal inspectors for unsafe working conditions at a new Wal-Mart store in Upper Sandusky.

Two of the three citations against Harco Services LLC, of Kennesaw, Ga., are willful, the most serious that can be issued, after an April visit from inspectors of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration found workers were exposed to cave-in hazards while working in a trench about 14 feet in depth.

The company has 15 days to contest the findings.
