Summary of California Quality Glass & Mirror – Denial of Petition for Reconsideration


Based upon the statements attributed to an ostensible foreman, Employer was found liable for failing to provide guardrails on an open side and end of the top platform of a rolling scaffold which exposed its employees to a fall hazard.
Employer’s petition for reconsideration was denied. The Board reaffirmed that the 30 day limit for an ALJ to issue a decision is directory and not mandatory and that Employer in attempting to introduce new evidence, did not set forth sufficient grounds to the Board warranting that the Board grant its petition.
