Worker Paralyzed from Fall from Roof


 OSHA has cited Ryan Roofing Inc. in Salina with three willful safety violations after a worker suffered a broken neck and was paralyzed when he fell 20 feet from the roof of a commercial building the company was replacing in Hoisington on Oct. 3, 2012. Proposed penalties total $115,500. The willful violations include failing to ensure the integrity of a roof
structure employers were working on, to provide and use fall protection systems on a low-sloped roof and to provide training on fall protection to workers. Due to the nature of the hazards and the violations cited, Ryan Roofing has been placed in OSHA's Severe Violator Enforcement Program, which mandates targeted follow-up inspections to ensure compliance with the law.
