N.J. Contractor Cited With Proposed Penalties Totaling $47,000
Posted on May 19, 2010 by JNana
On EHS Today writer Sandy Smith shares a news story about OSHA citing Acies Group LLC for three repeat violations and one serious violation related to fall hazards at a construction worksite in Lebanon, N.J. Proposed penalties total $47,000.
“Falls are the leading cause of fatalities in the construction industry,” said Patricia Jones, director of OSHA’s Avenel Area Office. “It is vital that employers protect their workers from these deadly hazards, and provide an overall safe and healthful workplace.”
As the summer months approach and more construction jobs appear outdoors are you making sure that your employees have the necessary fall protection equipment? As you can see the fines can be extremely costly for your business. More importantly the welfare of your business depends on the safety of your workers.
"OSHA initiated an investigation on Jan. 19 as part of a local emphasis program focused on fall hazards in the construction industry after investigators observed workers being exposed to fall hazards as high as 24 feet while performing masonry work on the exterior of a building."
There are several ways to avoid fall hazards first and foremost starting with the proper fall protection equipment. Ensure that you have easily accessible shock-absorbing lanyards, harnesses, and fall protection kits to meet all the needs of your employees. Make sure employees are trained on the proper use of the equipment. Also make sure you have correct sizes so workers are comfortable and more likely to always wear the fall protection equipment.
