The Roof Doctor of Olympia has been cited for a safety violation, its seventh since August 2008, the state Department of Labor and Industries announced this week.
The safety violation, which totaled six willful violations and one serious violation, involve fall protection for roofers.
The company was previously cited for safety violations in August 2008, October 2010, February 2012, July 2012, September 2012 and December 2013.
A September 2014 safety violation, the seventh, was based on an inspection that took place on April 11, which found that “five workers were exposed to falls from as high as 17 feet while engaged in various roofing activities.”
That resulted in total proposed penalties of $219,600.
The Roof Doctor has appealed the violation, L&I spokeswoman Elaine Fischer said, and the appeal will be heard by the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals. A date hasn’t been set yet, she said.
If the Roof Doctor loses on appeal, penalty money is paid into a workers’ compensation supplemental pension fund, helping injured workers and families of those who have died on the job.
