Norwalk Meat Packer Faces Steep Fines for Worker Death

Plenty of safe places to work in the region.   A meat-packing plant in Norwalk doesn't appear to be among them.   OSHA has put the smackdown on the VPP Group meat packing facility for what the federal agency is calling a "zero commitment to worker safety and health."  The action comes after the December electrocution death of a worker at the plant.  OSHA says the worker was sent to work on a leaking water pipe near an electrical box.   The fed agency found nearly a dozen violations in the plant, some not having anything to do with the electrocution.  OSHA has recommended fines of nearly 190 thousand dollars to VPP.
