OSHA just announced today major fines against two local roofing companies. One incident involves a 14-year-old boy falling from a roof.

“So, that was disturbing to us as well. ”And if that wasn’t bad enough, two weeks later, OSHA said it did another inspection of Double M Roofing & Construction, and workers were still not wearing fall protection gear.

“Even though the company was aware of the fall and the requirement for fall protection, and had all the fall protection equipment, they refused to use it,” Eberts said. OSHA fined Double M Roofing & Construction based out of West Farmington nearly $75,000 for these incidents. We have reached out to the company and its owner Melvin Schmucker.

The company has three weeks to respond to the fines and make any disputes. Meanwhile, OSHA also announced it fined another roofing company owner Ivan Lowky from ILS Construction in Hartville nearly $120,000 for not using fall protection equipment during a November 2020 job in Canton.
