TWIN FALLS, Idaho - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined a south-central Idaho home construction company after a worker received serious injuries at a job site.
The Times-News reports that the federal agency announced Wednesday a $27,600 fine assessed to TKO Custom Homes of Twin Falls for what it calls willfully exposing workers to fall hazards.
The agency on April 30 inspected the Evergreen Apartments job site and cited the company with one willful violation of fall hazards and three other serious violations.
The agency says it found workers being exposed to falls of nearly 10 feet.
The company has 15 days to appeal.
Company spokesman Chad DeBie says the company will meet with the agency to review the corrective action the company has taken.
