Appleton roofing company fined by OSHA twice in six months for hazards

APPLETON – An Appleton-based contractor was cited twice in six months for exposing workers to dangerous fall hazards, the U.S. Department of Labor said in a statement Thursday.

Apple Roofing Solutions received citations from the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration in June for failing to provide fall protection equipment to workers, train workers on fall protection equipment use and provide a ladder extending at least 3 feet above landing surface. The hazards were identified during an inspection at a job site in Neenah, and OSHA proposed penalties of $21,140.

Then, on Nov. 2, an OSHA inspector saw six roofers on top of a two-story duplex in Algoma. After an investigation, OSHA cited the company March 3 for the same hazards, with proposed penalties totaling $49,722.
