Ohio Construction Company Busted for Fall Protection, Eye Safety Violations

The company was cited for four willful safety citations for failing to provide fall protection and ensure workers operating nail guns wore safety glasses at two separate job sites in Findlay and Toledo, Ohio. Proposed fines total $48,400.

OSHA has cited Fry's Roofing and Construction LLC for four willful safety citations for failing to provide fall protection and ensure workers operating nail guns wore safety glasses at two separate job sites in Findlay and Toledo, Ohio. Proposed fines total $48,400.

"Falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry and employers like Fry's Roofing and Construction have a responsibility to protect their workers," said Kim Nelson, OSHA's area director in Toledo. "OSHA is committed to protecting workers on the job, especially when employers fail to do so."

OSHA inspected the Findlay job site on July 15, which resulted in a citation for a willful violation as a result of not using fall protection while roofing a residential structure, which exposed workers to an 18-foot fall hazard. A second willful violation was cited for failing to ensure workers wore safety glasses when operating a nail gun.

On July 19, OSHA inspected the Toledo job site and cited the same two violations. At this location, workers were exposed to a fall hazard of 23 feet without protection.

Both inspections were conducted under the local emphasis program for fall protection. Fry's Roofing and Construction has been cited for violations of both of these standards in 2008 and 2010 at other Ohio job sites.
