Summary of RII Plastering – Decision After Reconsideration

The Board affirmed an ALJ’s decision finding employer violated two separate safety orders. In doing so the Board held that an ALJ is entitled to consider all the evidence presented at hearing, including evidence offered by an employer, in reaching a decision. The Board also held that statements by an employer’s foreman and safety manager are admissible into evidence as party admissions, an exception to the hearsay evidence rule.
