Roofing company faces $113,000 fine after repeated 'willful' worker safety violation


A federal inspection of a Panama City Framing work site has resulted in a third citation in three years for not protecting workers on a roof from falling, and failing to do so willingly.

Panama City Framing faces a fine of $113,816 for having workers doing residential construction over six feet off the ground without any personal or standing fall protection system such as a guardrail or safety net.

In this case, Panama City Framing's workers were on the roof of a one-story home during a June 28 inspection that was part of OSHA's Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction.
