Firms cited in crane collapse

September 16, 2008|From Times wire reports

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration fined three construction firms $313,500 over what it said were safety violations leading to a tower crane collapse that killed seven people in March.

OSHA cited Reliance Contractors Group, the general contractor; Rapetti Rigging Services, Inc., the crane erector; and Joy Contractors Inc., the concrete subcontractor on the project.

The 19-story tower crane broke away from a luxury apartment building under construction and fell across other buildings as far as a block away.
