Florida Roofing Contractor Cited for Repeatedly Exposing Workers to Fall Hazards


OSHA has cited Crown Roofing, LLC, for exposing workers to fall hazards at two residential worksites. The contractor faces penalties of $265,196. OSHA initiated the inspections as part of the Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction after inspectors observed the workers on roofs without fall protection.

OSHA initiated the inspections in August and October of 2018, as part of the agency’s Regional Emphasis Program for Falls in Construction, after inspectors observed the company’s employees working on roofs without fall protection. OSHA cited Crown Roofing for exposing employees to fall hazards. The company has been inspected 17 times in the past five years, with 11 of the inspections resulting in repeat violations of the fall protection standard.

“Companies that fail to meet basic fall protection requirements are placing workers’ lives at risk,” said OSHA Fort Lauderdale Area Director Condell Eastmond. “Crown Roofing’s repeated disregard for complying with safety and health standards demonstrates their indifference to employee safety.”
