Federal regulators have opened an investigation of a worksite death in Sunrise Beach.
The Camden County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that a 41-year-old Lake Ozark man was killed the day before at a Sunrise Beach condominium when he fell about 60 feet from a balcony. The man was found by a coworker.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an inspection after the man’s employer, Marsh Painting, notified the agency within the required eight hours, OSHA spokeswoman Rhonda Burke wrote in an email Wednesday. The man was working with three other employees painting the interior of the high-rise building, Burke wrote.
He was found outside the building after an apparent fall, Burke wrote.
OSHA has up to six months to finish its inspection, issue any citations and levy financial penalties if it finds regulatory violations.
