OSHA: Wisconsin Contractor Continues to Risk Workers' Safety

The agency says Diaz Roofing has violated fall safety rules in 13 inspections over 10 years.

Since 2005, 13 OSHA inspections have found that Diaz Roofing LLC has failed to protect its workers from fall hazards. The latest inspection on March 7, 2016, has resulted in two willful, two serious, and one other-than-serious safety citations against the Wisconsin company, which OSHA labels a "serial OSHA offender."

The citations are the result of OSHA investigators observing eight employees working on a residential roof without fall protection. The employees were also using nail guns without eye protection.

"Diaz Roofing continues to ignore OSHA standards and is failing to protect its employees on the job," said Ann Grevenkamp, OSHA's area director in Madison. "OSHA will continue to monitor this employer for compliance and do everything in its power to keep workers safely out of life-threatening working conditions."
