Contractors on the $4.4 billion Second Avenue subway project in New York City have been hit with safety violations and fines by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, according to this article. Accidents, worker injuries and lack of proper oversight are among the violations named by OSHA. However, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority "strives to keep all its projects free of accidents and injuries, as well as to comply with all regulatory and legal requirements," said MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg. "When we fall short, we work with regulatory bodies and oversight agencies to remedy problems and take steps to ensure they will not happen again."
