Virginia Fines Painting Company Following Worker Electrocution

VirginiaThe Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Program issued four citations and $152,144 in penalties to Johnny Marenco Andasol and Darwin Marenco Andasol in Alexandria after a worker was electrocuted when an unguarded metal extension ladder made contact with a power line. VOSH inspectors concluded that the employers failed to adequately train workers using ladders about hazards from overhead power lines, and provide a ladder with nonconductive side rails.
