OSHA Compliance Survival Kit for the Construction Industry

Every employer has a responsibility to make sure all employees have a safe and stable work enviroment.  These employees should have access to safety equipment and information at anytime they are on the jobsite.  These employees should be able to go to their superiors with fears or concerns about safety without fear of termination or retaliation.  In order to accomidate employees in such a fashion, we have compiled a short and condensed version of what an employer of the construction industry should have documented and in place for emergencies or for an OSHA inspection.
Management Commitment to Safety and Health
  • Employers and managers should lead by example.  If your employee sees a superior taking safety seriously, they will too!
  • Assign Safety and Health Responsiblities to employees.  If you involve and rotate employee responsibities, everyone will feel important and compliant.
  • Give the assigned employees to correct minor issues.  When a subordinate is give a little more power than their position requires, they are more likely to do what it takes to keep earning your trust and respect.
  • Assure your employees that they may voice their concerns regarding safety without any reprocussions.  These employees are the front line guys and they often see the danger in a position before a manager does. Listen to what they have to say and respect their position on safety.  Most state laws protect whistltblowers, so check your states regulations.
  • Inform employees of any hazards that you are aware of.  Again, it is the employer’s responsibility to safeguard their employees, so keep the lines of communication open.
  • If you are sharing a worksite with other companies or their employees, it is your responsiblity to commincate any known hazards to them.  Share a safe workplace.
  • Post the OSHA state or Federal poster where all can see it.  Employees have a righ to know the law.
Hazard Identification and Determination
  • Carefully evaluate all operations, procedures, facilities, and equipment to identify hazards to employees and others.
  • Monitor exposure levels of noise, air quality, heat, electricity, silica or dust, and moisture. 
  • Set aside time to do routine inspections.  If you create a habit of safety awareness, you will create a timeless good habit.
  • If you have an accident, conduct an investigation.  The best way to prevent history from repeating itself it to identify and address the factors that caused the accident to begin with.
  • Do a PPE assessment.  For every position within construction, evaluate the potential dangers associated with that assignment, then create a list of personal protection equipment that should be worn while performing these tasks.  Determine if it goes beyond simple protection and what procautions should be taken. Document all of your findings.
Hazard Elimination and Control
  • Inspect and ensure all machines and tools are in proper working order with relevant standards. 
  • Develop positive practices with workplace safety and health so that it becomes second nature.
  • Housekeeping is a must.  Jobsites should be free of debris and cleaned up daily to ensure the safety of others.
Emergency Response Planning
  • Develop emergency response plans for your jobsite.  If you are in an industry where your jobsite changes frequently, you still need to have a response plan.  These do not have to elaborate, but clear enough to communicate what needs to be done in case of an emergency.
  • Have an emergency route to evacuate injured employees.  If your jobsite is in a new development area that the emergency response team may not have access too, have in a convienent location that is easily accessable by all employees.  Use established landmarks and turn by turn directions.
  • Have a list of all the jobsite emergency contact information including any pre-existing medical conditions and allergies that emergency personel may need to know.
  • Employers should train employees to recognize hazards and unsafe working conditions and how to avoid them. 
  • Employers need to provide training on safe work practices, safe operation of machinery, and equipment, and how to recognize when things are not safe.
  • Access ladders, stairways, confined space, and enclosed space entry hazards are all subjects that need to be trained and documented.
  • You must record and post injuries and fatalities.  This is otherwise known as the 300-log. 
  • Maintain medical records and exposure records for all employees and past employess.
  • You must maintain all appropriate documents and tags for abatement purposes.  If you do not have these items, it could mean hefty fines.
