The fine leveled by the federal government's Occupational Safety and Health Administration on a New Jersey contractor is enough to get anyone's attention: $191,215. OSHA says DH Construction LLC has been allowing workers to use unsecured scaffolding that didn't have enough planks for proper flooring. The company was also cited for failing to provide adequate protection to its construction workers from falling objects.
“If you live to be my age, you will see,” the 85-year-old New Jersey resident says. "You can’t do anything. You can’t go anywhere...sometimes you need a change of scenery.”
That desire for a change in scenery is when danger rears its head. The nation was in the middle of the Great Depression when Dolores was born. World War II was still a decade away. Television didn't exist yet. So when the octogenarian gets behind the wheel of a car, her daughter worries that her mom could cause a car accident that injures or kills someone.
