Workplace safety in North Carolina has been under much scrutiny in recent years. Farmworkers’ safety conditions made headlines recently, which is bringing more attention to the Department of Labor’s regulations and the lack of safety inspections and enforcement. A North Carolina textile plant also caught fire for the third time this year. Loose cotton fibers fell into equipment that sparked flames and caused past fires at the Kinston Fibers’ plant.
