Disney contractor fined by Cal-OSHAby Leah Zanolla
Apr 23, 2013
The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health fined a Disney contractor after an incident that resulted in a worker slipping on the roof of Space Mountain. In November 2012, HSG Inc., a Los Angeles based company, was contracted by Disneyland to clean the exterior of the Space Mountain attraction. Cal-OSHA said several safety rules were broken, resulting in the 37-year-old falling and breaking several bones. One of the violations was not having proper anchors provided to the worker.
HSG has two weeks to file an appeal to the $60,995 fine. Disneyland is currently facing a $235,000 penalty from Cal-OSHA, also related to the incident.
