Bosco Custom Homes Exposes Workers to Dangerous Fall Hazards

OSHA has proposed fines of $174,240 for a lack of fall protection at 3 residential job sites

Bosco Custom Homes Inc. has been cited for failure to provide fall protection to workers on three separate residential framing projects, according to a news release from OSHA. The organization cited the company for 30 violations, including three willful, 20 serious and seven repeat safety violations. The proposed penalties total $174,240.

“Bosco Custom Homes has failed to fix safety hazards related to falls. This shows an inexcusable and deliberate lack of care for the safety and health of the company’s employees,” said Jake Scott, OSHA’s area director in North Aurora. “Falls remain the leading cause of death in the construction industry, and allowing construction workers to be exposed to fall hazards without fall protection is unacceptable.”

Bosco Custom Homes was cited for one willful violation for failing to provide fall protection at its work sites, and seven repeat violations for failing to provide protective helmets and fall protection training and improper use of an extension ladder.

Additionally, 20 serious violations were cited for exposed workers to scaffold hazards, struck-by and electrical hazards.
