OSHA Extends Residential Construction Deadline to December

ODE-3000 - FALL PROTECTION REQUIREDOSHA recently announced it will extend its temporary enforcement measures to help reduce falls in residential construction until December 15, 2012. The measures include free on-site compliance assistance, penalty reductions, extended abatement dates, measures to ensure consistency, and increased outreach. Fatalities from falls are the number one cause of workplace death in construction.

OSHA has been working closely with the industry to assist employers in complying with the new directive. The agency will continue to work with employers to ensure a clear understanding of, and to facilitate compliance with, the new policy. A variety of educational and training materials are available on the OSHA residential construction and Fall Prevention Campaign web pages. Browse Fall Protection safety signs here.
