Construction Compliance

"Every day in this country, more than 14 workers lose their lives in preventable workplace tragedies -- close to 100 deaths every week."
  - David Michaels, OSHA Assistant Secretary

Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women. This includes conducting inspections and enforcing its standards.

Certain provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Toxics Substances Control Act (TSCA) impact some construction and demolition projects.

Applied Environmental Health & Safety, Inc. offers comprehensive compliance services to our clients in the construction industry.

In addition to OSHA and EPA required written Safety Assessments and Policy and Procedure development, we offer site and task specific construction compliance assistance.

OSHA's Fall Protection Policies for Residential Construction 
1926.501(b)(13)

"Residential construction." Each employee engaged in residential construction activities 6 feet (1.8 m) or more above lower levels shall be protected by guardrail systems, safety net system, or personal fall arrest system unless another provision in paragraph (b) of this section provides for an alternative fall protection measure. Exception: When the employer can demonstrate that it is infeasible or creates a greater hazard to use these systems, the employer shall develop and implement a fall protection plan which meets the requirements of paragraph (k) of 1926.502.

Note: There is a presumption that it is feasible and will not create a greater hazard to implement at least one of the above-listed fall protection systems. Accordingly, the employer has the burden of establishing that it is appropriate to implement a fall protection plan which complies with 1926.502(k) for a particular workplace situation, in lieu of implementing any of those systems.
