Our Massachusetts construction accident attorneys have learned that the contractor involved in an accident last month that seriously injured a worker has been cited for more than two dozen safety violations over the past few years.
OSHA records show that the company has been fined or paid settlements of more than $20,000 in the past six years. In 2009 alone, OSHA cited Massachusetts masonry and stone contractors in 42 separate incidents. Safety violations by this particular contractor include lack of safety training and failure to provide the proper fall protection for workers.
The Salem construction accident that occurred on June 15 is still being investigated. So far no blame has been assigned.
