Report: Fall-protection, Worker Safety Violations Need Tougher Fines

Violations on fall-protections, exposure to silica dust and other workplace safety standards should come with tougher penalties, according to a report from the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health. Peter Dooley, an Arizona-based senior consultant for the group, said about 15% of fatalities in the workplace are fall related. The report also stated that exposure to silica dust and other construction materials could raise the risk of lung cancer, pulmonary tuberculosis and other diseases.
