New York, Mar 5 (ANI): It seems the problems hounding musical ‘Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark’ won’t be disappearing anytime soon, with the show now being hit with triple workplace violations.

The production company of the show, which has already seen numerous injuries, was issued three serious violations of workplace safety standards on March 4, the New York Daily News reported.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration hit the Broadway show with citations for four separate incidents last year resulting in cast members injuries.

The production company, 8 Legged Productions LLC, exposed the cast “to the hazards of falls or being struck during flying routines”, the federal regulators said.

The violations carry 12,600 dollars in proposed fines, which is mere pocket change compared to the 65 million dollar musical’s weekly costs. (ANI)
