A general contractor building a wind turbine in Hanover, MA, has been fined after an employee survived a 24-foot fall down the structure.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration levied fines against Lumus Construction for violations discovered at the job site during the inspection, but not directly related to the accident.
The construction worker, 53-year-old Ernest Ray, fell 24 feet down the wind turbine on Dec. 14, 2012. He was wearing fall protection and survived.
