Alan Loignon died when he fell from the third-story roof of a home on which he was working. The owner of Purvis Home Improvement, Shawn D. Purvis, did not provide fall protection to employees. Shawn Purvis is the half-brother of Alan Loignon. Purvis has a history of OSHA violations related to fall protection. He has refused to pay some past OSHA fines because he argues he is not an employer and the workers are subcontractors, and therefore, he cannot force them to wear safety gear.
