Executive Summary

Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board

Summary of Hearn Construction – Decision After Reconsideration

The Board granted Employer’s appeal, holding the Division did not prove a violation of Title 8, California Code of Regulations section 1724(f)(2) [fall protection: safety lines securely attached to substantial anchorages].  The Division failed to prove Employer was the “controlling” or “correcting” employer (see Labor Code section 6400(b)(4), re multi-employer worksites); thus Employer did not violate Title 8, California Code of Regulations section 1647(e)(2) [minimum platform width requirements].
