Oregon cites company after two workers are injured due to fall
The Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division cited Minnesota-based Abhe & Svoboda Inc. for nine safety violations after two workers were seriously injured during restoration of the Ross Island Bridge in Portland. Oregon OSHA inspectors determined that the company failed to; provide adequate fall protection, construct and install the scaffolding system according to minimum requirements, and guard holes up to two feet in diameter. In February, a worker fell through a ladder opening, landing on a co-worker 37 feet below, resulting in injuries to both of them.
