New Jersey Contractor Cited for Fall Safety Hazards

The company faces $198,550 in penalties for the alleged violations.

OSHA announced an enforcement case against a New Jersey residential contractor named Berlin Builders, with the agency reporting the company repeatedly exposed its employees to dangerous falls by ignoring safety standards. The company was cited for 19 repeat and eight serious violations in total after inspections at New Jersey worksites in Haddonfield, Robbinsville, Glassboro, and Lakewood; the contractor is based in Cinnaminson, N.J.

The penalties per site are:

  • 310 East Park Ave, Haddonfield, $47,080
  • 15 Sapphire Road, Robbinsville, $42,570
  • 130 1st St., Lakewood, $61,380
  • 2500 Gianna Drive, Glassboro, $47,520

"By refusing to provide the proper fall protection, Berlin Builders is jeopardizing the lives and well-being of its employees and their families," said Paula Dixon-Roderick, director of OSHA's Marlton Area Office. "Four in 10 construction workers who die as a result of workplace injury suffer a fall, so it’s vital that construction companies take responsibility to ensure worker safety. No one should have to compromise their safety in order to earn a paycheck."

Some of the violations include the failure to provide fall protection, train employees on fall protection, inspect job sites, and train employees on how to use ladders properly.
