According to federal safety inspectors who investigated a floor collapse at a casino construction project in Cincinnati, Ohio, six companies involved have been cited for safety violations and will be fined more than $108,000. More than a dozen workers were injured in the accident at the downtown Horseshoe Casino project earlier this year. Fortunately, most of the injuries were minor. A spokesman for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that certified letters about the violations have been mailed out. Neither the companies nor the range of violations were named by OSHA, pending their notifications. But, a spokeswoman for one of the companies, Cincinnati-based Messer Construction, says it has been notified of four citations totaling $25,200 in fines.
