OSHA is enforcing its new fall protection standards, as evidenced by a recent crackdown in New York.

OSHA cited general contractor Arberia & Associates and subs K&G Haxhari Construction (carpentry) and Mondi Construction Inc. (masonry) for a total of 21 alleged violations of workplace safety standards with $71,340 in total penalties for violations at a worksite in the Bronx.

OSHA says employees were observed at a construction site working 24 feet above the ground on scaffolds that lacked guardrails. A variety of tripping, electrical, training and other scaffold hazards also were identified at the site.
