As your enterprise grows, you become more than just a business; in the eyes of the federal government you are now an employer. As an employer, you must maintain a safe and healthy workplace for employees. Those rules are enumerated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
Some of the most common OSHA violations include:
- Falls from platforms and ladders
- Hazardous chemicals on the worksite
- Scaffolding accidents
- Respiratory illnesses due to environmental hazards
- Machinery with moving parts
We believe that safety is the number one concern for anyone in the construction industry. As a business owner, it’s important to build a complete contractor safety program.
