Tue. 4pm: Fine against Campbell company upheld

November 6, 2012
Tribune Chronicle |

A fine against a Campbell company for a safety violation in 2010 has been upheld by a U.S. Department of Labor Administrative Judge.

A news release from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration states the judge upheld a $19,250 fine against M&J Painted.

The case comes from a bridge work site in Fall River, Mass., that was being cleaned and painted in 2010 that was inspected by OSHA, resulting in six citations.

The company had agreed to hire a consultant to design a system from falls during bridge work. However, the release states, when OSHA inspectors returned to the site in 2011, they were not allowed to inspect until they got a warrant and the system in place did not meet safety standards.

The company appealed a citation and fine and a three-day hearing was held, where the judge sided with OSHA.
