General Contractor Cited for Exposing Workers to Fall Hazards

OSHA has fined New Homes Construction Inc. a total of $40,480.

After an OSHA compliance officer observed employees of New Homes Construction Inc. without fall protection, an investigation led to two repeat citations and five serious citations for the Burlington, N.J., company.

The two repeat citations are for not providing fall protection, while the five serious citations are for violations including the use of damaged and defective equipment and lack of employee training.

"Falls remain the leading cause of death in the construction industry. In our jurisdiction last year, there were three fatalities related to an employer's failure to provide fall protection. One death is one too many," said Paula Dixon-Roderick, director of OSHA's Marlton Area Office. "Plan, provide and train. These are three simple steps employers should take to prevent falls and ensure a safe workplace."
