The state Attorney General's Office said investigators found many problems with Black River Builders. The state said the victim, Brian Tarachanowicz, was not wearing protective equipment, and no inspections were performed to detect hazards.
Tarachanowicz fell 26 feet while removing a roof deck at a commercial building in Sparta, north of Grand Rapids.
Black River Builders owner Joe Novak of Holland has been charged with a safety violation causing death, a felony. He was due in court Wednesday.
