Verizon NY Inc. cited for Repeat and Serious and Repeated Safety Violations following utility worker's death in Brooklyn.
Updated On: Apr 30, 2015
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Verizon N.Y. Inc. for 10 alleged violations of workplace safety standards following the Sept. 14 electrocution death of an employee at a work site in Brooklyn at New Lots and Christopher Avenues. A field technician working in an aerial lift bucket was installing steel suspension strands when he came in contact with an energized power line.

The citations can be viewed at
http://www.osha.gov/ooc/citations/Verizon.pdf. Verizon, which faces a total of $140,700 in fines, has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and proposed penalties to comply, meet with OSHA's area director or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

Under OSHA, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA's role is to ensure these conditions for America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
