Two local construction companies are facing tens of thousands of dollars in fines after OSHA issued multiple citations against the firms for safety violations at a West Chester site including a failure to report the hospitalization of a worker who fell 40 feet, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Bordentown, N.J.-based High Quality Builders must pay $72,880 in penalties after a makeshift platform fell apart at the site of a residential development at 1323 West Chester Pike, sending its 30-year-old employee 40 feet to the ground, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration citation.

The DOL says a worker is now confined to a wheelchair after falling 40 feet at a local construction site.
