Proper Safety Precautions WILL Save Money & Lives

Safety is a Job Everyone Needs to Take Seriously

While working at heights, it is very important to take the proper safety precautions & to use the correct fall protection equipment each and every time. No matter the size of the job, safety should never take a back seat.

Recently the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Northridge Construction Corp. for failing to provide proper fall protection & protective helmets, ensuring the structural integrity of a roof and the misuse of a ladder. The company now potentially faces $224,620 in penalties.

These potential penalties are the result of an employee suffering fatal injuries after a structure collapsed during the installation of roof panels on a shed. This unfortunate event could have easily been avoided if the proper safety precautions were taken and if the employee was provided the proper fall protection equipment.

“Fall-related fatalities are preventable if employers use required fall protection systems, such as guardrails or personal fall arrest systems. OSHA standards are legal requirements that every employer must follow to ensure workers are protected from serious injuries.” – OSHA Long Island Area Director Anthony Ciuffo.
