Muskego company handed citations, fines by OSHA after crane overturns along Prospect Ave. in May

MUSKEGO/MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Muskego company has been handed citations and fines by OSHA after a crane overturned along Prospect Avenue just south of North Avenue on May 9th. The proposed fines total $15,200.

Two people were hurt when the car they were in was struck. The couple (and their dog) did not seek any medical attention.

Their car was totaled.

The other three cars the crane hit were empty at the time of the incident.

OSHA accuses Tollefson Steel & Fabrication, Inc. of the following:

    OSHA calculates the total proposed penalties levied against Tollefson Steel & Fabrication, Inc. to be $15,200.

    Tollefson Steel & Fabrication has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and notice of the proposed penalties to contest the citations and proposed penalties before the OSHA review commission.

    If Tollefson Steel & Fabrication chooses not to file or contest within that 15-day period, it must abate the citations within the period ordered in the citations, and pay the proposed penalties. Abatement is the correction of the safety or health hazard/violation that led to an OSHA citation.
