A drywall contractor in Florida received a $75,000 fine and 14 safety violations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration after a worker died on a job site in July, according to Kate Hinsche from The Real Deal.

A 22-year-old worker for Stucco Works was hoisting buckets of cement to the second floor of a job site in Miami Beach, Florida, when a pulley system hit them in the head. Stucco Works is based in Homestead, Florida, and is run by Christopher Jimenez and Miguel Jiminez.

The company is contesting all 14 citations, of which OSHA said 12 are “serious.” Among the violations are worker exposure to “struck-by hazards,” using unsafe scaffolding and failing to develop a hazard communication program and an accident prevention program.

“Stucco Works’ failure to make employee safety a priority led to the loss of a young worker’s life,” said Condell Eastmond, OSHA area office director. “Employers are required to follow the federal standards that are meant to protect workers from the hazards that caused this tragedy.”

GB Investments I, which is run by Jose Boschetti Jr. of the Boschetti Group, owns the job site. Construction started on the site in 2022.
