DOL Files Complaint against San Antonio Firm to Collect $234,450 in Fines

The fines are associated with 26 citations issued by OSHA during the course of six inspections at the San Antonio-based company's various job sites in Texas between February 2007 and December 2010.

The U.S. attorney's office in San Antonio has filed a complaint with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas against San Antonio Lath & Plaster Inc. to collect $234,450 in delinquent fines assessed by OSHA for workplace safety violations.

The fines are associated with 26 citations issued by OSHA during the course of six inspections at the San Antonio-based company's various job sites in Texas between February 2007 and December 2010.

The company had 15 business days from receipt of the citations to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA, or contest the citations and penalties before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. When the company failed to respond, the citations became final orders of the commission, and the penalties became due.

"Employers who violate safety and health laws and refuse to pay penalties for those violations will be held accountable," said James Culp, the department's regional solicitor in Dallas. "The Labor Department will not hesitate to pursue employers who disregard their responsibilities."
