U.S. D.O.L. finds W. Virginia Roofing Contractor Exposed Employees to Fall, Electrocution, and more hazards

July 7, 2018

HURRICANE, WV - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Design Roofing LLC for exposing employees to fall and other safety hazards at residential construction sites in Scott Depot and Culloden, West Virginia. The company faces proposed penalties of $101,988.

 

OSHA inspected the two work sites after receiving complaints of employees working without proper fall protection. The Agency issued willful violations for the fall hazards, and serious violations for allowing employees to work within close proximity of an energized electrical conductor, and improper use of an extension ladder.

 

Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in construction, but they can be prevented if employers comply with fall protection requirements,” said OSHA Charleston Area Office Director Prentice Cline. “This employer’s disregard of required safety procedures leave employees vulnerable to hazards that can cause serious or fatal injuries.”

 

The company has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director, or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

 

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
