Recently, OSHA has proposed with $45,500 penalties for exposing workers to dangerous heights without proper fall protection to the Spieker Co., a general construction contractor based in Perrysburg. A construction site inspection was done on March at a high school in Delta, Ohio where

it was found that Spieker Co. has been willfully violating OSHA regulations and without providing necessary protection the employer employed workers to work at heights in excess of 13 feet. It is an voluntary disregard for required laws for which the workers may have faced dangerous situation and even death.

Now these OSHA safety training courses are available on the web and that sure is convenient for employees and the employers.
