ANAHEIM (AP) — California safety regulators have fined a Disney contractor $60,995 after a worker was injured while cleaning the Space Mountain ride.

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health says Los Angeles-based HSG Inc. violated several safety rules. The fine was levied on Friday.

A 37-year-old contractor fell and suffered broken bones last November while cleaning the exterior of Space Mountain at Disneyland.

The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/10ojUZ8 ) reports the contractor was cited for failing to make sure anchors were provided to the worker.

HSG has two weeks to file an appeal. An email to the company was not immediately returned.

Earlier this week, Cal-OSHA proposed a nearly $235,000 penalty against Disneyland in connection with the contractor's injury.

Disney has not decided whether it will appeal the penalties.
