  • City fined for OSHA violations

    The City of Lawrenceburg has been fined $4,500 by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet for what investigators classified as two “serious” OSHA violations that occurred while employees were hanging Christmas lights.
    Both incidents involved workers hanging Christmas lights on poles Nov. 30 along Main Street. The first violation was because the city did not post legible traffic signs to warn oncoming traffic of the workers, nor did it have workers flagging traffic around the equipment. The fine for that violation was $2,250.
