OSHA recently released a news report stating that an Ohio contractor was found to be defying federal safety requirements again. Benny Troyer Roofing and Trail Roofing LLC are facing an additional $228,000 in penalties for endangering their workers. In dedication to providing the highest-quality Personal Fall Arrest Systems and fall protection products and ladders that not only meet, but exceed OSHA standards, Design Components seeks to provide roofing company owners with the latest in industry news concerning fall protection.
OSHA inspectors conducting an investigation observed two employees working at heights of around 20 feet with inadequate fall protection. This occurred whilst Troyer was on-site. Violations do not stop coming after the first. Benny Troyer and Trail Roofind LLC have been cited for similar violations in the years 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2021. Racking up more than $108,000 in unpaid federal penalties.
A lack of Personal Fall Arrest Systems, or Fall Protection, during construction is the most frequently cited OSHA violation.
A lack of PFAS is also the leading cause of fatalities in construction occupations. Fall protection and following OSHA standards must be an essential part of any business where climbing heights are involved, especially a roofing business. Adhering to OSHA’s fall protection standards not only, most importantly, saves employees from potential fall dangers but also saves the company from extensive fines that can potentially put a company out of business.
