Of New York City three serious citations after musical cast members were injured in four incidents in 2010. Responding to a referral from the New York State Department of Labor, OSHA conducted an investigation and determined that employees were exposed to fall and struck-by hazards during flying routines, because of improperly adjusted or unsecured safety harnesses. An additional fall hazard stemmed from unguarded open-side floors that lacked fall protection. Finally, the company failed to shield employees from being struck by moving overhead rigging components. Three serious citations carrying $12,600 in proposed fines were issued.  [8 Legged Productions LLC, New York City, NY, March 4, 2011].
