Central Florida Contractor Exposed Workers to Potentially Deadly Falls Eight Times Since 2011

Collis Roofing faces $143K in penalties

OSHA has cited Collis Roofing for two repeated violations and one serious violation after witnessing workers unprotected from falls as they installed shingles at a residence, according to a report.

The repeated citations were issued for failing to protect workers with a fall protection system and allowing employees to operate powered nail guns without eye protection. The serious violation was issued for not extending a portable ladder 3 feet above the landing area.

"Although Collis Roofing advertises that it cares about the safety of customer's families and employees, the company continues to jeopardize the lives of their workers by not ensuring they are protected from serious injury or death when working at dangerous heights," said Brian Sturtecky, OSHA's area director in Jacksonville. "This employer is fully aware of OSHA's standards and yet - seven times in five years - we have found Collis putting their workers at risk in violation of federal safety laws."
