Federal safety authorities have cited a roofing company and proposed $70,000 in penalties for a worker's fatal fall from one Omaha roof to another.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration says JMA Roofing committed one repeat violation and one other-than-serious safety violation. OSHA says in a news release that the worker was replacing a rooftop rubber membrane on July 17 when he fell to the top of an adjacent building.

OSHA says JMA didn't ensure that its workers were using fall protection - a violation that OSHA says the company also committed in 2010.

A company representative didn't immediately return a call Monday from The Associated Press.
