LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited and fined two Colorado companies in connection to a construction worker’s death.

The Longmont Times Call reports (https://bit.ly/1Z8569a ) that Ramos Roofing has been fined $11,460 and Colorado Structures Incorporated has been fined $12,775 in connection to the death of 39-year-old Tereso Zamarippa-Hernandez.

Zamarippa-Hernandez died Aug. 31 after falling 15 feet through a hole in a roof and landing on concrete.

Erie-based Ramos Roofing was fined for not having a program in place to check for holes and cited for not training employees on ladder and stairway usage. Owner Alfredo Ramos said that he is working to reinforce safety policies, though they were in place in August.

Colorado Springs-based CSI was fined for not providing frequent inspections. A CSI spokesman was not available for comment.
