    Citations issued in death of roofer - BY STACEY ROBERTS, Arkansas Democrat Gazette
    “Had the company followed OSHA-controlled deckingzone standards, this tragedy could have been prevented,” Hansen said in the release.

    The serious citations were issued for failing to ensure that personal fall-arrest systems were used by employees working from the boom or basket of an aerial lift; failing to ensure that the controlled decking zone — partitioning off a safe section to work — boundaries were properly designated, marked and enforced; and two related to failing to train employees to recognize and avoid scaffold hazards.

    A serious violation is one in which there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard the employer knew or should have known about.
