Roofing Contractor With 11-year History of Exposing Employees to Hazards Cited for Additional $228K on top of $108K in Unpaid Penalties

An Ohio contractor with a long history of federal workplace safety violations has added an additional $228,126 in fines to $108,318 in unpaid penalties with OSHA for again exposing workers to potentially deadly fall hazards.

OSHA inspectors observed two employees of Benny Troyer Roofing and Trail Roofing LLC working at heights of up to 20 feet above the ground without adequate fall protection while Troyer was on-site at a home under construction. Inspectors also found that the employer allowed workers to use ladders improperly and failed to enforce the use of head, face, and eye protection. The inspection identified one repeat safety violation, two willful violations, and one serious violation.

The agency cited Benny Troyer Roofing and Trail Roofing LLC for similar violations in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2021. More than $108,318 in unpaid federal penalties have been referred for debt collection.
