OSHA’s Retribution: 2 Missouri Employers Jailed for not complying with OSHA

OSHA called for the arrest of 2 St. Louis employers for not complying with the court sanctions that help to enforce the OSHA citations. Brian Andre who is now the former owner of Andre Tuckpointing and Brickwork, and Regina Shaw who is the owner of Andre Stone and Mason Work were recently arrested for repeatedly failing to comply with the OSHA citations.

OSHA has also said that Andre and Shaw even failed to comply with citations ordered by the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, right after the court’s initial ruling of contempt that went against them. OSHA believes that employers who deliberately expose their employees to hazards and openly ignore the OSHA citations should not be dealt with leniently.

OSHA issued many citations to the original company as well as its successor for repeat, willful and serious violations related to scaffolding erection deficiencies, fall hazards and power tool guarding.
