OSHA cites company after workers’ fall on stadium roof

OSHA cites company after workers’ fall on stadium roof
A subcontractor is facing the axe after workers felt from the roof of the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium. The accident resulted in injuring two workers seriously.

OSHA has cited Birdair, Inc., of Amherst, NY, for the accident where two workers slide 260 ft down the domed roof side. According to OSHA, the workers were not wearing the required safety fall protection equipment and not trained for hazards related with falls.

OSHA has the penalties for about $45,000, which one is for willful violation where employees were not wearing the required fall protection equipment and one for serious workers for employees not trained in hazards associated with falls.

The company has said that they will contest the citations.

The safety of the workers lies at the hand of the employers. It is the responsible of the employers to provide OSHA safety training programs to ensure the safety of the workers. The OSHA training courses are available both online and on-site for the worker’s training.
