KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A Kearney company faces $7,600 in penalties because two of its workers fell from a roof last year in Grand Island, and one died.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/19eyw2H ) that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is citing Roeder Construction. The agency says Roeder didn’t provide fall protection or appropriate safety training to prevent the death of a 42-year-old worker who fell off the residential roof and another worker who was injured in the same accident.

Roeder has 15 business days to request an informal conference with the OSHA area director or to contest the findings.

A public phone listed for Roeder Construction is no longer in service.
