Two Roofing Companies Cited for Fall Hazards at Colorado Site

"Fall hazards are well known in the roofing industry, and these employers should have taken the proper steps to protect their employees," said David Nelson, OSHA's area director in Greenwood Village, Colo.

OSHA announced Dec. 28 that it has cited roofing company Aspen Contracting Inc., based in Lee's Summit, Mo.; and subcontractor J Cuellar LLC, based in West Bend, Wis., for exposing employees to dangerous fall hazards at a Fountain, Colo. construction site. The companies face proposed penalties totaling $147, 998.

During a July 2018 inspection, OSHA observed employees of J Cuellar LLC re-roofing a home without fall protection and cited it for a fall protection violation. OSHA cited Aspen Contracting Inc. for repeatedly failing to protect workers from fall hazards and for failing to conduct frequent and regular inspections of its job site.

"Fall hazards are well known in the roofing industry, and these employers should have taken the proper steps to protect their employees," said David Nelson, OSHA's area director in Greenwood Village, Colo.
