Fall hazards net roofing contractor over $1.5 million in OSHA fines story by Kristen Beckman from
A Florida roofing contractor faces penalties of more than $1.5 million for 14 safety violations and has been placed in OSHA's Severe Violator Enforcement Program. Great White Construction was cited for failing to protect workers from dangerous falls.
OSHA observed employees removing shingles from the roof of a multistory building without the use of proper fall protection equipment.
They wore harnesses, but were not tied off. A second inspection at a separate site observed employees working under similar conditions. OSHA said the company has an "extensive prior history of violations," which resulted in 11 separate willful citations.
OSHA said it has investigated the company 12 times since 2012, resulting in 22 citations. "In the past five years, Great White Construction repeated violations has demonstrated indifference towards the safety of their employees.
Aluminum Services LLC Racks Up $1.9 Million in OSHA Penalties story by Stefanie Valentic from
An aluminum manufacturing company is facing nearly $2 million in fines after OSHA discovered 51 violations. OSHA cited Aluminum Services LLC finding that two employees were hospitalized as a result of two separate incidents.
"Aluminum Shapes extensive list of violations reflects a workplace that does not prioritize worker safety and health," says Robert Kulick, OSHA's regional administrator. "The company can more effectively protect its workers by implementing a comprehensive safety and health management system."
The first worker experienced chemical burns after entering a tank containing dehydrated sodium hydroxide, aluminum oxide and decomposed metal. Despite employees reporting they were experiencing chemical burns to their skin, the workers were directed to re-enter the tank, suffering further injuries.
The second incident occurred when a machine operator suffered a broken pelvis after being caught between the unguarded moving parts of a metal fabrication machine.
|The crane driver jumped three meters from the cabin when he felt it going over.
Luckily nobody was injured as the concrete slab came crashing to the ground.
Technicians are now carrying out an on-site inspection to work out what happened.
It is thought there was a malfunction with the crane.
