The U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey filed a lawsuit last week against a New Jersey contractor in an effort to collect $678,053 in past-due fines issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

All of the inspections were planned and in each of the eight inspections, multiple violations were found each time, ranging from two to five per visit. The majority of the citations fall under fall hazards and general requirements.

The suit claims that the company owes $473,178 in fines plus interest, penalties, administrative fees and treasury/Department of Justice fees. It does not, however, include one of the most recent proposed fines of $261,451, one of the multiple violations found from the latest site inspection in July 2018.

The suit also notes that one of the fines had been contested by the company, but that claim was rejected reportedly because it was filed too late.
