Roofing Contractor Exposed Workers to Dangerous Falls Five Times in One Year: OSHA

OSHA has proposed $280,000 in fines against the Kennesaw, Ga.-based company.

In 2015, Jasper Contractors Inc., a roofing company based in Kennesaw, Ga., was found guilty of fall protection and eye protection standards in five different inspections at Florida job sites, according to OSHA, which reported its inspectors found the company did not ensure employees were properly wearing fall protection equipment and exposed workers to the risk of falls from as high as 8 feet, as well as failing to ensure workers operated powered nail guns while wearing eye protection.

"Despite its claim that its employees 'are adults who know the risks,' Jasper Contractors has a legal responsibility to protect its employees," said Brian Sturtecky, OSHA's area director in Jacksonville, Fla. "This company’s dismissive approach toward workplace safety is illegal and irresponsible. OSHA will continue to use all its available resources to ensure workers are protected."
