Falls Are Still The Leading Death Cause in the Construction Industry
According to local news outlets, a construction company from Ohio was cited because of an allegedly evident lack of fall protection. The citations also related to several other issues regarding basic eye safety.
The reports from the news sources have demonstrated that the ensuring of a safe workplace for employees was not made possible due to the lack of safety materials and that is unacceptable.
The fines the construction company will have to pay will reach the total of $48,400. Since studies have pointed that falls are the leading death cause in the construction industry, OSHA, otherwise known as Occupational Safety & Health Administration has been investigating construction sites to ensure the protection of workers across the nation.
Unfortunately, an unsafe workplace is a reality for many workers in the country. Osha has reported that the same construction company was cited for the same problems back in 2008 and 2010.

As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer I hope that all companies that have been cited in the past year by OSHA will finally make their work environment a safer place for the employees.
