OSHA

An Ohio roofing company is contesting two safety citations issued by federal workplace overseers who said a worker died from heat stroke complications.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration said A.H. Sturgill Roofing of Dayton failed to provide a program addressing heat-related hazards and to train workers to recognize heat-related illness symptoms. 

Sturgill said Thursday it is contesting citations for alleged violations related to a temporary worker possibly being overcome by heat stroke at a Miamisburg work site.
