Construction Safety Regulations
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) has created an extensive series of rules designed to keep construction sites safe. Construction foremen who do not maintain strict adherence to these rules put their employees and others at serious risk.
The OHSA has created several safety regulations for construction sites, including:
- Providing all employees with access to written instructions on safety procedures
- Every employee must be able to describe his or her responsibility for safety and health
- Participation in audits and worksite inspections
- Installing guardrails in appropriate areas
- All employees must be provided with head protection
Even if an injury was not the result of an OHSA violation, we strongly recommend speaking with an attorney anyway. Oftentimes there are grounds for some type of legal action even if safety standards appear to have been followed by the books. Remember that factors like a boss’s orders, the pressure to finish the job, and the actions of other employees all have an impact on liability.
