OSHA Issues $315K In Citations for a Partial Building Collapse in Downtown New Orleans
During its investigation, OSHA found the engineering firm failed to adequately design and review steel bolt connections affecting the structural integrity of the building, issuing one willful violation for the failure.
OSHA also cited the project’s general contractor for three serious violations related to inadequate egress from the structure. A steel erecting contractor was also named in the penalties for failing to maintain structural stability of building.
The penalties sent to subcontractors cited a variety of OSHA violations, including emergency egress training, inadequate egress, fall hazard training, and safety hazards.
The companies have 15 days to comply, respond to, or contest the citation.

Lion Technology workshops are amazing!! You always learn so much, and the instructors are fantastic.
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!
