An administrative law judge of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission has vacated two citations issued by federal safety and health regulators against a Florida contractor involving a workplace fatality.
Justin Smith died in October 2015 after he was struck by a bulldozer operated in reverse while working at an apartment complex construction project in Saint Petersburg, Florida, where Riverview, Florida-based Central Site Development L.L.C. was engaged in site development work, according to commission documents. However, Mr. Smith worked for a subcontractor engaged in underground pipe work hired by Central Site.
