HR Boot Camp: OSHA – Achievable Safety Compliance in the Construction Industry

thu22sep9:00 amthu10:30 amHR Boot Camp: OSHA – Achievable Safety Compliance in the Construction Industry

Event Details

OSHA’s construction standards mandate that every contractor or subcontractor initiate and maintain such programs to provide workers with a healthy and safe work environment. Despite this simple and straightforward compliance mandate, five out of the top 10 frequently cited standards by Federal OSHA in fiscal year 2021 involved violation of construction safety standards. Moreover, over 1,000 deaths per year occur in the construction industry – accounting for one in five worker deaths on an annual basis in the United States. Construction employers, however, can be proactive in preventing workplace fatalities and injuries, and avoid becoming part of these workplace statistics, by implementing effective and simple safety and health programs. This session will discuss management’s leadership regarding: (i) training requirements under OSHA’s construction standards; (ii) hazard identification and assessment, including identifying fall hazards, at the worksite; (iii) understanding safety coordination responsibilities on a multi-employer worksite and OSHA’s multi-employer citation policy; and (iv) creating a culture of safe work practices to avoid and prevent OSHA citations.
