California OSHA issued four citations and $75,750 in penalties to Accurate Comfort Systems Inc. after a worker suffered serious injuries in a fall from a 12-foot-high work area. Inspectors determined that the company allowed workers to stand on the ladder’s top cap, and failed to ensure the ladder was secured and extended to the appropriate distance. The company was previously cited for these violations in 2017.
