Noelle Holladay True (true@rwktlaw.com)

On April 18, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) issued multiple citations to Premier Roofing Company LLC (the controlling employer) and Walter Construction LTD (the subcontractor) alleging various violations related to fall hazards.  On December 21, 2015, OSHA investigated a complaint in Denver, Colorado about employees who were exposed to fall hazards as they were installing shingles on a three-story building.  Two days later, investigators returned to the site and found workers exposed to the same fall hazards.

Premier was issued two repeat violations, and five serious violations, and fined $90,860.  Walter was cited for seven serious violations and fined $16,800.
