California Department of Labor Docket No 05R1D41572 California 20062008

The underlying allegation involves whether our client as the primary employer on a multi-employer worksite must provide alternate means of fall protection to employees of a contractor who tarp loads of lumber on flat bed trucks at a distribution center. The Administrative Law Judge granted our client’s appeal of the citation and vacated the fall protection citation. In doing so, the Judge agreed that our client was neither the creating or controlling employer of the hazard.
