OSHA has issued citations to four contractors building the ten-story parking garage at the Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, N.J., following an investigation of the Oct. 30, 2003, garage collapse that killed four workers and injured 21.

Fabi Construction, Inc., Egg Harbor Township, N.J.; Keating Building Corp., Philadelphia, Pa.; Mitchell Bar Placement, Inc., Sewell, N.J.; and Site Blauvelt Engineers, Mt. Laurel, N.J. were fined a total of $119,500.

OSHA's investigation identified one alleged willful and eight serious violations of safety standards.
