NJ Contractor Faces OSHA Fines
A New Jersey-based contractor performing a job in New York was recently fined nearly $90,000 by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration after it uncovered a series of safety violations.
Allied Brothers Construction was fined a total of $89,100 by the federal government’s workplace safety agency after an inspection revealed that it failed to provide fall protection for workers on roofs, hadn’t given them the right training to identify hazards and other issues that put employees at risk.
The local OSHA leadership said that the violations were alarming and needed to be fixed.
"What we found at this work site were hazards unacceptably similar to those cited during prior inspections at the employer's other sites," said Diana Cortez, OSHA's area director in Tarrytown. "It's clear that this employer must take effective action toenhance worker safety and eliminate such potentially deadly hazards at all of its work sites."
Other New York construction firms have received major fines recently. In June, Core Continental Construction was fined $94,380 after inspectors found 13 safety violations at its workstie.
