La Conti Concrete & Masonry, Inc. was fined $74,830 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for allegedly failing to provide safety measures for construction workers. OSHA claims they have repeatedly dismissed violations, including failure to make way for secure access for construction workers to a 35-foot tall scaffold and properly storing propane tanks at Secaucus worksite. The brick company “continues to jeopardize the safety and health of its workers by failing to correct these hazards,” according to OSHA director Kris Hoffman.
Employers bear the responsibility of providing safe and healthy working conditions. Neglecting to abide by OSHA regulations can result in lawsuits concerning the injury or death of a worker.
