Another bad actor makes news Posted by on

On the heels of AvalonBay's subs being hit for misclassification on three of their Massachusetts jobsites and National Carpentry being arrested for non-payment of wages in Connecticut, comes this news item. Shawnlee Construction, one of the largest nonunion woodframe contractors in New England, has again been cited by OSHA for serious fall protection violations.

This time out, OSHA is accusing Shawnlee of willfully disregarding the safety of workers at JPI project in Chelsea, MA and issuing a $70,000 fine.

Disregard is perhaps too kind a word in this situation. The article notes that Shawnlee has been fined 25 times in the last nine years, racking up more than $300,000 in fines!

After the second floor beams and columns came down, the brick and concrete block were removed from the entire building.

This is a picture of the building before construction began:

Here is the structure on March 6th. The second floor has been entirely removed, as well as the walls on the first floor.
