BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

OSHA cites framing company for fall and eye hazards

OSHA cites framing company for fall and eye hazards

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Wednesday it has cited a framing contractor for exposing employees to fall and eye safety hazards. The company, Omar Garcia faces proposed penalties of $113,073.

Last October, OSHA initiated an inspection after observing employees performing residential framing work without fall protection. The department issued one willful citation to Auburn, Alabama-based Omar Garcia for “failing to require employees to use fall protection, and one serious citation for allowing employees to use automatic nail guns without proper eye protection,” the department said in a statement.

“This company’s continual disregard of OSHA standards is putting employees at risk of serious injury,” Joseph Roesler, Moblie, Alabama-based office director, said in the statement. “Employers must ensure that all required protections are implemented to ensure worker safety.”

Omar Garcia could not immediately be reached for comment.
