Residential jobsites are subject to OSHA inspection

Most contractors are under the impression that if they only work in residences that they are not at risk of OSHA inspections. According to the following news release, OSHA is now targeting residential job sites as well. This following is directly from OSHA and has to do with Fall Protection. Even if you don’t work in areas where fall protection is a concern for you, If OSHA shows up on the job they could look for other violations as well.

News Release: OSHA announces three-month enforcement phase-in for residential construction fall protection

OSHA announced June 9 (2011) a three-month enforcement phase-in period to allow residential construction employers to come into compliance with the agency’s new directive to provide residential construction workers with fall protection. During the phase-in period June 16-September 15, if an employer is in full compliance with the old directive (STD 03-00-001), OSHA will not issue citations, but will instead issue a hazard alert letter informing the employer of the feasible methods that can be used to comply with OSHA’s fall protection standard or implement a written fall protection plan. If the employer’s practices do not meet the requirements set in the old directive, OSHA will issue appropriate citations. If an employer fails to implement the fall protection measures outlined in a hazard alert letter, and OSHA finds violations involving the same hazards during a subsequent inspection of one of the employer’s workplaces, the Area Office will issue appropriate citations.
