Tennessee OSHA issued four citations and $89,500 in penalties to Prince Erachem, LLC, for exposing workers to trenching and walking surface hazards. Inspectors found that the company failed to keep walking surfaces free from debris and provide adequate protective systems, shoring, and safeguards to prevent a spoil pile at the edge of the trench from falling on workers. The company was previously cited for these violations in 2014 and 2015.
