OSHA cited Florida Roofing Experts, Inc., after inspectors observed workers performing residential roofing activities without fall protection. The agency inspected the worksite as part of the Regional Emphasis Program on Falls in Construction. OSHA issued penalties of $132,598.

OSHA initiated the inspection as part of the Agency’s Regional Emphasis Program on Falls in Construction after inspectors saw employees performing residential roofing activities without fall protection. OSHA cited the roofing contractor for failing to provide fall protection for employees working at heights up to 13 feet.

“Implementing OSHA’s safety standards can help protect employees from risk of serious or fatal injuries.” said OSHA Jacksonville Area Director Michelle Gonzalez. “Employers have an obligation to provide personal protective equipment for their workers to prevent from falls from height.”

The company has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and proposed penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director, or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
