  • (1888PressRelease) August 07, 2022 - Federal plant safety investigators cited a Pompano Beach roofing contractor who put its employees to the construction industry's most murderous hazard, falls from an elevation site. The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration determined that the company's failure to follow that warning guideline put the life of a 25- year-old crew member in danger in February 2022.

    An OSHA investigation after the incident establishes that J & L RoofingInc. allowed workers to tear off an existing roof without fall protection at a two-story building in Davie. The worker fell from the roof onto a lower ground floor. The incident happened on Jan. 19, 2022, and the employee suffered from serious injuries for 29 days in a medical center.
    OSHA cited the company for one major breach for exposing employees engaged in roofing conditioning to fall dangers without a guard, and another serious breach of not training employees on the accurate use of fall protection systems.

    The agency has proposed$74,751 in penalties.
    "J & L Roofing, Inc. assured that its workers were defended from the construction industry’s leading cause of death, a youthful man's life could have been spared," said OSHA Area Office Director Condell Eastmond in Fort Lauderdale, Florida." rather, a family and a community are left to suffer and an employer is learning a painful assignment that federal plant safety norms exist to help dispensable and gratuitous tragedies."
