Workers Exposed to Multiple Fall Hazards While Roofing Residential Home

Redhawk Roofing has been cited for four repeated safety violations

OSHA has cited Redhawk Roofing of Libertyville, Illinois, for four repeated safety violations according to a report. Employees were observed working at heights up to 23 feet while roofing a residential home in Winnetka without adequate fall protection.

An inspection found the company exposed workers to fall hazards due to lack of fall protection and eye injury without eye protection.

"Each year, hundreds of workers suffer severe injuries when they fall on the job," said Angeline Loftus, area director of OSHA's Chicago North Office in Des Plaines. "Redhawk Roofing needs to immediately review its safety procedures, and follow OSHA standards to protect workers on the job before disaster strikes."
