OSHA penalizes Mansfield Company for not Protecting Roof Workers
OSHA has recently penalized roofing contractor Sheriff-Goslin Co. of Mansfield for failing to provide any kind of fall protection for those employees working on a roofing project at Sandusky. The company received one willful and one repeat safety violation. The total penalty that the company faces amounts to $86,500.

This citation comes right after an investigation that was conducted on Nov.9, 2010. Sheriff-Goslin has been slapped with one willful violation with a penalty of $70,000 for allowing workers to be exposed to a 27 foot fall hazard without providing them with any fall protection.

Fall are the main cause of death and injury at any workplace and Sheriff-Goslin has reportedly had a long history of failing to comply with OSHA and protecting workers from fall hazards.

What’s more, Sheriff-Goslin has also been issued with one repeat violation citation with a penalty of $16,500. This is for failing to protect workers from overhead hazards by providing them with adequate heard protection. The company was previously cited for the same reason in June, 2009.
