Here’s another example of why companies want to have clean OSHA records: Once an employer gets on the agency’s hit list, additional violations will be even more costly.
Peach State Roofing of Rock Hill, SC, was issued just one citation by OSHA from a recent inspection.
But that citation will cost the company $50,000 because it’s a repeat of one it was cited for previously.
OSHA visited a worksite in Sicklerville, NJ, where two Peach State employees were performing roofing work.
After the inspection, the company received one repeat citation for failure to provide fall protection for employees working approximately 13 feet above ground.
