AK Steel started trading at $7.11, and by midday, with the steel manufacturer’s stock price on an inconsistent bullish upward surge. The problem however is not with the stock market but on the company’s internal employee woes.

The company is currently facing sanctions form OSHA, the occupational health and safety watchdog. On March 22, OSH sent a letter to the company’s Middletown plant to investigate cases of workplace hazards involving the welding unit of the plant. OSHA makes random inspections on factories and plants, to ensure all working conditions are met.
