Florida company fined for safety violations on Albany project

The federal government fines a Florida company for serious safety violations on a project in Albany.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says workers were put in danger while sandblasting and painting this bridge over Lake Chehaw on Philema Road last July.

OSHA proposed fines of nearly $59,000 against Atlas Steel Coatings.

Inspectors say workers were exposed to lead because the company did not provide proper safety equipment or training.
