Texas Flooring Company Cited After Worker Falls Off Balcony on Job Site

OSHA has cited Subfloor Systems and issued $66,990 in proposed penalties.

Following an inspection, OSHA announced it has issued one willful and one serious violation to Subfloor Systems Inc. of Hurst, Texas, after a worker fell off a balcony at a construction site. The willful violation was issued for the company's alleged failure to ensure employees use fall protection, while the serious violation was given for failing to train workers in recognizing and avoiding fall hazards.

"Subfloor Systems put its workers in harm's way and exposed them to preventable fall injuries. Employers are responsible for providing training and fall protection," said Josh Bernstein, OSHA's acting area director in Fort Worth. "Subfloor Systems did neither. The company must take corrective action immediately before another worker needlessly suffers injury or worse because of its neglect."
