Florida Roofing Company Cited for Fall Hazards

OSHA's release said it investigated Crown Roofing LLC as part of the agency's Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction.

OSHA announced it has cited Crown Roofing LLC, based in Sarasota, Fla., for allegedly exposing employees to fall hazards at a Jupiter, Fla., work site. Along with the citations, the agency has proposed $149,662 in fines against the company.

OSHA's release said it investigated Crown Roofing LLC as part of the agency's Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction. OSHA cited the company for one repeat violation – which carries a maximum penalty of $129,336 – for failing to utilize a guardrail, safety net, or personal fall arrest systems while working at heights above 6 feet, and OSHA issued additional citations for failing to have a competent person regularly inspect job sites, materials, and equipment and failing to maintain written certification records verifying fall protection training was provided.

"This employer is risking the safety of workers by failing to comply with fall protection requirements," said Condell Eastmond, OSHA's Fort Lauderdale Area Office director. "Fall hazards are well known, but they can be eliminated when workers are trained and protective equipment is properly used."
