According to a press release from OSHA, the agency has cited Coastal Building Systems of Amelia Inc. for repeat fall hazards totaling $55,000 in proposed fines.

Previous inspections were completed in 2010, 2011 and 2012. In the most recent inspection, the company was cited for failing to provide a safety system for workers who were working at heights greater than six feet. In this instance, the workers were completing a project on a residential roof. In addition, OSHA cited the company for failing to provide eye protection for employees. The company was cited for similar violations at previous inspections.
