Valdosta - A South Georgia company faces $89,000 in fines for failing to protect an employee killed on the job. OSHA has proposed the fine for United Rentals Highway Technologies in Lowndes County.

In February, United Rental employee William Shawn Dedge was struck by a box truck as he painted surface markers near the entrance to the Kinderlou Forest golf community.

The Company was cited for failing to post motorist warning signs that indicate drivers are approaching a work zone, failure to use proper flagging equipment, and failure to provide traffic control devices, such as barricades, around the work zone areas.

The company has 15 days to appeal.
