The contractor demolishing a Ground Zero tower where a large pipe fell from the roof has been hit with $37,500 in fines for unsafe work conditions, the Daily News has learned.
The John Galt Corp., a Bronx firm with no prior experience taking down office buildings, was cited last week by the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration for 12 violations at the 130 Liberty St. job site.

OSHA began investigating the pipe incident but expanded its probe after the building's neighbors and The News raised questions about other incidents at the site.
Last week, the agency revealed that its investigators found more problems.
