Boone logging company faces fines for safety violations

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A Boone County logging company faces $42,000 in civil fines for safety violations at a worksite.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration says Ross Logging of Seth exposed workers to safety hazards at the worksite in Elkview.

The agency says in a news release that inspectors found workers were drop starting chain saws while felling trees. Drop starting is dropping the chain saw with one hand while pulling the starting cord with the other hand.

Workers also didn’t wear cut-resistant boots or socks while operating chain saws.

The agency issued 11 citations to the company, including two for willful violations. A willful violation is one in which an employer either knowingly disregarded a legal requirement or acted with indifference to employee safety.
