Plainville company cited by federal labor officials

PLAINVILLE

Federal labor officials have cited a Plainville-based construction company for allegedly exposing employees to fall hazards at sites in Newton and Danvers, according to a statement released Monday.

Shawnlee Construction LLC, a wood framing contractor, faces $164,000 in fines, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Inspections in June and August found Shawnlee employees working at heights up to 33 feet without fall protection at a residential construction project in Newton. Others were found working in similar conditions at heights up to 22 feet in Danvers, OSHA said.
