OSHA Compliance And Workers’ Comp
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all employers to provide a workplace that is free from recognized hazards. It specifies different regulations for various industries. Failure of construction industry employers to act in compliance with OSHA standards can result in serious injuries to workers.

Knowledge Of OSHA Requirements
OSHA regulations are designed to ensure worker safety, prevent accidents and create statutory codes to define who is responsible for avoiding accidents. They require construction industry employers to follow certain procedures for:
- Managing commitment to safety and health
- Identifying and eliminating hazards
- Planning for emergencies
- Properly training employees
- Recording and posting injuries and fatalities
When an accident takes place at a construction site, OSHA generally sends someone to investigate the incident. OSHA investigators will take thorough inventory of the site, working to determine whether an OSHA violation caused or contributed to the accident. The result of this investigation and identification of fault can be used to support your personal injury case.
