The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Action Concrete Construction Inc. for exposing its employees to fall hazards and eye injuries. The company faces proposed penalties of $59,864.
During its investigation of the company’s Panama City Beach worksite, OSHA inspectors identified one willful violation for failing to install guardrails or use personal fall arrest systems while employees worked at a height of 11 feet. OSHA also cited the company for allowing employees to use a pneumatic air gun without proper eye protection. The inspection was part of OSHA’s Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction.
