An industrial accident that resulted in a wrongful death has resulted in an OSHA - the Occupational Safety and Health Administration fine for a Houston, Texas contractor. The workplace safety violations resulted in a fine of $112,000.00 against O.S. Interior Sytems, Inc.This substantial fine was the result of an employee removing a demountable wall made contact with a live wire when he suffered an electrocution death. The company was cited for willful violations including the failure to adequately protect employees from energized electrical circuits and failing to properly warn employees about job site dangers. OSHA determined that if the company would have properly warned its employees about the location of electrical wires the death would have most likely been prevented.If you or a loved one was involved in this industrial accident or a similar accident and are in need of an industrial accident attorney, please call us today.
