Our Construction Services department counsels owners and contractors on OSHA issues unique to developers and contractors, and on compliance with OSHA’s safety and health regulations for the construction industry, 29 C.F.R. 1926. These regulations govern the use of personal protection equipment, material handling, welding and cutting, electrical safety, scaffolding, fall protection, crane safety, trench excavations and the use and handling of hazardous substances.
We also understand the vulnerability of general contractors under OSHA’s multi-employer policy, which allows OSHA to require that employers correct a hazard even though that employer does not have any employees exposed. We routinely counsel general contractor clients on how they can protect themselves from such exposure.
We advise our owner and contractor clients on how to take steps to protect their employees and thereby minimize the chances of an OSHA inspection, and also advise clients during and after an OSHA inspection. Our services include:
During Inspection Counseling
After Inspection Counseling
