OSHA extends temporary enforcement measures in residential construction
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will extend for three months its temporary enforcement measures in residential construction, which were scheduled to expire Dec. 15. The measures, now extended through March 15, 2013, include priority free on-site compliance assistance, penalty reductions, extended abatement dates, measures to ensure consistency and increased outreach. Fatalities from falls are the No. 1 cause of workplace death in construction.
The agency will continue to work with employers to ensure a clear understanding of and facilitate compliance with the new policy.
