Guam - OSHA cited general contractor BME & Sons for failing to provide workers' personal protective equipment. The federal agency has fined the local company approximately $4,500. Citations stemmed from an inspection that took place in February at a worksite in Santa Rita.

BME & Sons was cited 16 times since 2005, including one willful and six serious violations at one of its sites.  Employees were reportedly not using proper face shields to protect their faces, which could cause serious physical harm.

In the meantime, the company has 15 business days to comply or contest citations.
