According to The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, A.M. Stern Inc., a Rochester, N.Y., roofing contractor faces nearly $160,000 in fines for fall hazards at job sites. OSHA says it has cited the contractor for repeated and serious violations of workplace safety standards while workers installed a roof in Fairport. The agency says inspectors were at the suburban Rochester job site twice last year and observed Stern employees exposed to falls of 15 to 30 feet while working at the unprotected edges of the building’s roof. Stern was cited for a similar violation in 2008 at a Geneseo worksite. The contractor was also cited for other violations at the Fairport site, including failure to warn employees of fall hazards.
