M. Durrance Construction Cited for Exposing Workers to Dangerous Falls

OSHA has cited the Jacksonville, Fla., company for one willful violation.

According to a news release from OSHA, M. Durrance Construction Inc. of Jacksonville was cited for exposing workers to dangerous falls during framing work at a residence on Hawthorn Way in Orange Park. OSHA has cited the company three times since 2010 for lack of fall protection.

"This isn't the first time we've found dangerous fall hazards at this company's work site. Failure to fix these problems proves how little regard M. Durrance has for the safety of its employees," said Brian Sturtecky, OSHA's area director in Jacksonville. "These blatantly unsafe acts put workers at risk of serious injury or death. Not only is it wrong for this company to ignore this risk, it is illegal."

OSHA issued one willful citation for allowing employees to conduct roofing operations on a pitched structure without fall protection.
