OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
Summary of J. R. Daniels Company - DAR
An Employee fell from the leading edge of a roofing deck being installed on
a warehouse. The Division cited Employer under section 1670(a). The ALJ upheld
a violation but reduced it from Serious to General. The Board affirms the violation.
It was not proven that this was a roofing operation so section 1730, under the
roofing Safety Orders, did not apply. Section 1710(h) does not apply when an
employee is "working on or near a leading edge of a roof."
