Feds cite Guam company over working conditions

Associated Press

HONOLULU — The U.S. Department of Labor has cited a Guam company for alleged hazardous working and living conditions at a job site and barracks.

Officials said Thursday in a San Francisco news release that Hua Sheng International Group Corp. was assessed $139,500 in penalties.
Hua Sheng has 15 business days to comply, request an informal conference or contest the findings.
The department cited the company for one willful violation for allegedly failing to provide workers with an adequate water supply for drinking, cooking, bathing, flushing and laundry.
There are also 28 serious violations listed for alleged safety and health hazards related to poor living conditions at the employees’ barracks as well as at the work site.
