$87,327 in Penalties for Two Construction Companies

The U.S. Department of Labor and OSHA cited GA&L Construction Corp., and The Rinaldi Group of Florida LLC $87,327 in penalties on Friday, June 21st 2019 for failing to protect employees from fall hazards at a construction work-site in Miami, Florida.

The employee in question fell 40-feet and was fatally impaled in December, 2018. According to the OSHA website, the employee was, “…retrieving cement blocks from a crane basket to place them in two locations where a wall was being built. The employee was walking on some plywood that was not supported underneath and the employee fell approximately 40-feet to a set of rebar that impaled him, killing him.”

Some of the citations included:

  • Failure to maintain programs which provided for the frequent and regular inspections of the jobsite.
  • Failure to clear work areas, passage ways, and stairs from debris during the course of construction.
  • The employer did not determine if the walking/working surfaces had the strength and structure integrity to support the employees safely.
  • Employees were exposed to a 40-foot fall hazard while storing cement block units on a plywood deck floor without fall protection equipment.
