Well, another fire at CDI, I remmember when a Dryer at CDI Tipton got fire and plant manager (same at visalia right know don't let co wokers call fire dept.)know he can hide the situation, maybe the dryer operator was tired because this people use to work alot of hours, double back, 15, 21 30 days in a row etc. for this reason CDI have a class A action sue going right now, starting by a dryer operator. Also this operator have and accident at CDI (heat stroke) after work for 2 hours at 135 F at the dryer, he was at Delano Hospital and CDI Superintendent and co-worker pull this guy from the hospital at 2:00AM w/o his permition and drop him in front of his house high in demerol and almost naked !! this will be a good history... find out about this. also find out how many hours the operator was at work or how many days he was working with no days off !! maybe the dryer was pushing to much... maybe the plant manager skip mid wash or CIP and force the dryer to keep the production who knows?
