LA VISTA, Neb. (AP) - Federal safety regulators are proposing $70,000 in penalties against an Omaha-area builder for safety violations.

The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration said in a news release Tuesday that it is proposing the penalties against R&M; Equipt LLC, of La Vista. The agency says citations were issued last week after inspectors saw four of the company’s employees working on Feb. 5 at heights greater than 10 feet without adequate fall protection.

Company owner Matt Myers said Wednesday that the work violations were immediately rectified and that he and his company are working with OSHA on resolving the complaint.
