CONSTRUCTION SAFETY MANAGEMENT
This program is designed to provide the user with information on establishing an effective Safety Management Program to help prevent costly work related injuries and to support compliance with OSHA workplace safety regulations.
The practice of occupational safety and health and its related regulatory programs are constantly under review and change. Additionally, there are significant differences in professional interpretation of regulatory standards and pertinent occupational safety and health information. In order to prevent costly work related injuries and occupational illnesses with the resulting worker’s compensation insurance claims, all employees must be properly trained and held accountable for safety. Employees must understand all known hazards presented in their work environment and be able to respond appropriately to unplanned hazards, which may arise. The responsibility for complying with regulatory requirements and staying current with regulatory issues resides with the employer.
This publication is not intended to take the place of legal or professional assistance. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required with regard to a specific issue confronting an employer, then the services of a competent professional should be sought accordingly. No representation can be made or responsibility taken by the publisher regarding the completeness, accuracy, or continued validity of the information in this publication.
This program does not address every item in 29 CFR 1926, nor is it intended to address motor carrier safety regulations, environmental safety regulations, or local codes and ordinances. The manual addresses several areas related to the prevention of workplace injuries and accidents faced by employers engaged in “general industry” operations. It is very important to understand that under Federal Law you are responsible for compliance with all standards and regulations of 29 CFR 1926, which apply to your work areas and operations. All employers are encouraged to obtain and become familiar with, a copy of the OSHA General Industry Safety and Health Standards, 29 CFR 1926, published by both the U.S. Govt. Printing Office and several private printing firms. The OSHA web page is also a very valuable resource: www.osha.gov
