Strong and Rochester company cited for workplace safety violations

Rochester, NY -- Federal authorities have cited Strong Memorial Hospital and Rochester-based DGA Builders, for violations of workplace safety and health standards, chiefly involving asbestos.

The companies face a combined total of $53,200 in proposed fines, following April inspections by OSHA in response to a complaint.

The hospital had contracted DGA to perform renovation work. OSHA found that, prior to the start of work, the hospital did not determine the presence of asbestos-containing materials in the work area and didn't post warning signs or limit worker exposure.
