A construction company was building a hotel and retail space when an MOL inspector conducted a routine inspection. The inspector noticed that the entranceways to and from the work area were obstructed and issued an order to keep the routes clear. But the next day, the entranceways still weren’t clear. The company was found guilty of failing, as a constructor, to keep the routes to and from the work area clear of obstructions and to comply with an order or a requirement by an inspector. The court fined it $65,000. The court also found the supervisor guilty of failing to ensure the routes were kept clear and fined him $2,000 [Vrancor Development Corp. and Sean Kehoe, Govt.
