Pennsylvania Contractors Cited for Exposing Workers to Fall Hazards


Navy Contractors, Inc., faces $603,850 in fines after inspectors observed workers at three jobsites performing framing work without fall protection. The framing contractor was cited for failing to provide fall protection equipment and training, improper use of ladders, deficiencies in walking-working surfaces, and inadequate fire protection. The general contractor, Storm Guard of Ches-Mont, Inc., was also cited for failing to provide fall protection.

At the Royersford site, Navy Contractors Inc. operated as a subcontractor under the supervision of a controlling general contractor, which was Blue Lion Ventures Inc. – doing business as Storm Guard of Ches-Mont Inc. in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. OSHA also cited the general contractor for failing to provide fall protection. OSHA previously inspected Navy Contractors Inc.’s worksites and determined in two of the inspections that the company willfully disregarded their obligation to provide fall protection.
