Charlotte construction company cited for safety violations
The U.S. Department of Labor recently cited a Charlotte construction company, Crowder Construction Co., for causing multiple safety hazards. Crowder Construction Co. is responsible for building the basin at the Gatlinburg Wastewater Treatment Plant.
In addition, the company is responsible for building the basin at the Neuse River Wastewater Treatment Plant which collapsed in June 2004 and killed two workers. According North Carolina OSHA documents, in a separate incident, a worker was using a “job-made” ladder constructed by Crowder when it tipped over and the worker fell 16 feet.
The company is accused of creating a work environment with “recognized hazards” that could be fatal or cause serious injury to employees.
