U.S. Department of Labor Cites Florida Roofing Contractor For Repeatedly Exposing Employees to Fall
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Turnkey Construction Planners Inc. - a roofing contractor based in Melbourne, Florida - for exposing employees to fall hazards. The company faces $199,184 in penalties.
OSHA initiated an inspection as part of its Regional Emphasis Program on Falls in Construction. Inspectors observed employees working without the use of conventional fall protection at two separate worksites in Port St. Lucie, Florida. OSHA has cited the company four times in the past five years for similar violations.
