OSHA Cites Julio Galindo for the 6th Time in 9 Years

The citations were for failing to provide fall protection to workers

OSHA has issued four repeated and three serious violations to Julio Galindo for exposing workers to falls and other hazards while re-roofing an existing residents and garage. The Columbus, Ohio, company was previously cited for these violations in June 2013 and April 2014. OSHA launched an investigation after receiving a complaint alleging workers were exposed to fall hazards.

 

"By refusing to cooperate with OSHA and correct these dangerous problems, Julio Galindo continues to expose employees to serious - and preventable - physical harm, and this is unacceptable," said Kim Nelson, OSHA's area director in Toledo. "With everything we know about how to work safely, it's troubling to see how many workers are still injured every year in the construction trades, and particularly from falls. This is unacceptable."

 

The four repeated violations were for: exposing workers to fall hazards of up to 20 feet because the company failed to provide fall protection; failing to train workers on the use of and requirement for fall protection equipment; not providing workers head protection while exposed to overhead hazards; not providing eye and face protection while operating pneumatic nail guns.
