BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- A Leeds-based company, M&B Metal Products Co., and its subcontractor, Oak Mountain Construction Co., have been hit with more than $166,900 in penalties.

The fines, proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, are related to a roof collapse at M&B in May.

In a news release Friday, OSHA inspectors cited M&B for 42 serious safety and health violations. M&B is one of the nation's largest makers of clothes hangers.

Oak Mountain was cited for two safety violations, including exposing employees to fall hazards.

The construction firm was performing repairs on M&B's roof when it caved in. The agency said the companies have 15 working days to contest the citation and penalties.
