Construction Safety Regulations
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has instituted a number of rules construction workers must adhere to in order to minimize risks of injury. While a construction job comes with accepted risks, serious injuries should be prevented by these rules. If someone is hurt on the job it is likely due to someone’s negligence, recklessness, or malfunctioning equipment—all of which warrant legal recourse.
Construction sites must adhere to the following safety standards:
- Workers must have permits for appropriate machinery, vehicles, and working with hazardous materials.
- Installing guardrail systems, where appropriate, to prevent falls.
- All employees must be provided with head protection.
- Employers designate capable employees to perform routine safety inspections
- Employers are responsible for developing and maintaining fire protection and prevention standards to avoid burn injuries.
There are numerous standards OSHA enforces in order to keep workers safe, and they vary depending on the type of construction work. Speak with an experienced attorney after an accident that can determine if a rule violation resulted in your injury.
