Havertown Construction Company Fined $70,000 by OSHA

DMAC Construction LLC willfully exposed workers to falls up to 25 feet, according to OSHA.

DMAC Construction LLC of Havertown, Pa., has been issued a citation for one willful safety violation after an OSHA investigation found the company failed to provide employees with fall protection.

The penalties totaled $70,000.

"Despite several previous citations and penalties for repeatedly jeopardizing worker safety, DMAC owner Darren McGee has yet to do the right thing. He continues exposing employees to life-threatening hazards that can easily be addressed by implementing basic safety measures like fall protection," said Nicholas DeJesse, director of OSHA's Philadelphia Area Office. "With falls the leading cause of death in the construction industry, employers must make worker safety the top priority to prevent avoidable tragedies."
