Federal officials say six companies building a biomass plant in Berlin have put workers at risk by not following safety regulations.
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration proposes fining the companies about $280,000 for thirty-one “willful, serious and repeat violations of workplace safety standards.”
“These hazards included potential cave-ins, falls, scaffold collapse, crushing, exposure to lead and electrocution hazards,” said OSHA spokesman Ted Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald said there were no serious injuries or deaths.
