The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit ordered Maine roofing contractor Stephen Lessard, to implement a comprehensive safety and training program and pay $389,685 in outstanding OSHA fines for repeatedly exposing workers to falls. His roofing and construction companies were cited for safety violations at 11 different work sites in Maine between 2000 and 2011. The contractor was also ordered to ensure that workers use required safety equipment and fall protection; employ a competent person to ensure that work is performed according to OSHA regulations; and submit certification that cited hazards have been abated.
