OSHA has proposed nearly $80,000 in fines for Great Southern Building Systems, LLC, Pearl River, La., for safety violations related to concrete formwork collapse during the reconstruction of a Hurricane Isaac-damaged restaurant in Kiln, Miss. Great Southern served as a subcontractor to Berthelot Design Systems, whose principal and sole employee, Gary Berthelot, was trapped and killed by falling concrete and debris while placing supports as slab pouring commenced above him.
