A federal workplace safety investigation found that Mad Dog Construction and two subcontractors could have prevented the fatal fall of a 31-year-old laborer at a construction site.

The worker was installing roof trusses Aug. 17 at Independence Landing on School House Road before falling 12 feet to the ground, the U.S. Department of Labor said in a Thursday news release. The worker, whose name was not released, died later that day at a local hospital.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued citations against Mad Dog, Big Hammer Inc. of Monticello, which employed the person who died, and Forgotten Coast Crane Services Inc. of Crawfordville. Mad Dog and Forgotten Coast each received a serious violation and are facing fines of $6,250 and $8,037. Big Hammer received more than one serious violation and is facing a $25,001 fine.
