Cavco Industries Cited for Construction Debris, Fall Hazards

OSHA cited the homebuilding company for 15 serious violations.

Cavco Industries Inc., of Seguin, Texas, has been cited by OSHA for 15 serious violations, including failing to control the accumulation of construction debris and waste, as well as not providing proper fall protection.

A March 2015 investigation as part of the Site Specific Targeting program also uncovered violations for not preventing machines from starting up during servicing, not installing proper machinery guards, and not repairing recognized electrical hazards.

"A repeat citation for fall protection, especially from a building manufacturer of modular home structures like Cavco, shows a complete lack of responsibility for the safety of its workers," said Casey Perkins, OSHA's area director in Austin. "The employer failed to find and fix serious hazards that put worker safety in jeopardy. OSHA will not tolerate such negligence."

Cavco faces proposed penalties of $67,000.
