Heath Hudlow, of Summerville, said he had multiple experiences with companies in North Dakota breaking federally mandated rules and disregarding employee safety, Officer Jo Stricklin stated.
He was hired to drive a truck for an oil field company called Black Sheep LLC., in North Dakota. He said that the company forwarded his personal information to TN Energy. Hudlow, however, decided to seek employment with Salyer Transport.
“While working with Salyer, Mr. Hudlow stated that the company had a gross disregard for safety and mandated rules. He stated that the drinking water was shipped from town in an uncapped truck and was not suitable to drink and that the smoke alarms in the on-site residences had been removed. He stated that there was dangerous Hydrogen Sulfide in the area and was not provided with any protective equipment. Mr. Hudlow fears that his information has been compromised due to the unprofessionalism of the companies he worked for while in North Dakota,” Officer Stricklin reported.
