CAMILLA, Ga. (WALB) - The Tyson Plant in Camilla is reiterating its safety policy. This comes after a woman expressed concerns about her daughter’s safety at the plant.

The woman, who’s remaining anonymous, said she’s worried for her daughter’s safety, and the safety of other workers, after multiple fires at the Tyson Plant.

“The other day when they had a fire, it was on the walk-on. What the walk-on is, is when you’re under the building, and you really have to crawl,” the woman said. What if nobody knew?”

Corporate Communication Manager with Tyson Foods Morgan Watchous did confirm a small fire the morning of Nov. 28, which set off a sprinkler head.

She said limited people were there, and the sprinkler put out the fire. Watchous said the fire department was called to the scene to confirm the fire was out.

“At Tyson Foods, our top priority is the health and safety of our team members, their families and our communities. We take this responsibility very seriously. We have in place a host of protective steps at our facilities,” Watchous said.

Watchous said they evaluate safety measures and add enhancements when necessary.
