A panel of federal appeals judges ordered Great White Construction Inc., Jacksonville, Fla., to pay more than $1.5 million in fines and penalties, according to Bloomberg Law.
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) officials inspected two St. Augustine, Fla., worksites in February 2017 and citations were issued August 1, 2017.
The company was fined for 11 violations for lack of fall protection, and three repeat violations for improper ladder use and eye protection violations.
"In the past five years, Great White Construction's series of willful, serious, and repeat violations has demonstrated indifference towards the safety of their employees," said OSHA Regional Administrator Kurt Petermeyer in an August 2017 statement.
Great White Construction has been ordered to pay the fine within 10 days of the decree.
