A well-known local business conglomerate has been hit with nearly $20,000 in fines by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration for placing workers in dangerous positions without proper safety precautions.

Inspectors found seven serious violations, inspectors said. A company spokesman could not be reached for comment.
