MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Federal safety regulators say a Martinsburg construction company faces more than $44,000 in fines for exposing workers to safety hazards at a Morgantown townhouse project.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the proposed fines Tuesday for K&F; Construction Inc.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1FI6ziA) reports OSHA inspectors arrived in May as construction crews were working on three-story townhomes at Suncrest Village.

According to the citations, the company was working 35 feet up on a roof with no protection in case of a fall. The company also was cited for failing to train employers on fall hazards and failing to keep debris clear from work zones and other areas.

A call to the construction company went unanswered Wednesday.
