OSHA fines contractor over N.J. building

By ,

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Wednesday it had cited Kay Waterproofing Corp., a Bronx-based masonry and waterproofing contractor, over serious safety violations at a residential building in Edgewater.

An investigation launched in December 2013 after an imminent danger complaint was filed found violations that included fall and scaffolding hazards. OSHA has proposed $66,600 in penalties.

"Falls remain the deadliest hazard in the construction industry. The safety and well-being of employees depends on effective fall protection on all job sites," Lisa Levy, director of OSHA's Hasbrouck Heights Area Office, said in a statement. "Employers are responsible for ensuring safe and healthful workplaces and will be held accountable when they fail to do so."
