OSHA cites four New York contractors for fall and safety hazards

These safeguards can protect workers from head injuries, spine injuries and other serious and potentially fatal injuries from falls at construction sites, but only when employers supply them and workers use them. Recently, OSHA proposed $272,720 in fines against four contractors for safety hazards that included failing to provide protection against falls.
