Columbus Workers Comp Attorneys Weigh In on Fall Hazards

A New Jersey contractor has been fined by the US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for a multitude of safety violations, according to NorthJersey.com. OSHA officials inspected a site in jersey where Beno Stucco Systems was applying stucco to a building.

Investigators cited six violations, five of which were repeat violations for infractions related to scaffolding hazards and fall protections. Proposed fines total $61,600.

“This company repeatedly neglected to implement basic, common-sense and legally required safeguards to ensure that scaffolds were erected properly and fall protection was provided for employees working at heights of 10 feet or more,” said OSHA’s Lisa Levy. “OSHA will not tolerate employers jeopardizing the safety and health of workers.”

OSHA is justified in taking these violations seriously. Falls are one of the most common and deadly workplace accidents in the nation each year. If you or a loved one has been injured on the job and needs assistance in filing for workers comp, please contact our firm today for a free consultation.
