PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon construction company has been fined nearly $73,000 for repeatedly not protecting its employees from falls.

The fine comes after the state’s Occupational Safety and Health Division cited Woodburn-based Bravo’s Construction Services for the seventh time for lack of fall protection.

The latest citation also includes violations for inadequate scaffold design, not ensuring employees wore safety glasses, and not holding safety committee meetings. In the past, the company was also cited for exposing workers to lead and asbestos.

The company employs 7 people and has done work in the Portland metro area.

Total fines against Bravo’s Construction now total more than $166,000 with $15,400 past due.

The state Construction Contractors Board suspended the company’s license in January after discovering it allowed unlicensed contractors to use its license number in exchange for a percentage of the profits.
