NAHB’s Construction Safety and Health Committee and association staff members are working with OSHA to explore additional alternatives for erecting roof trusses and rafters.
It should be noted that several states operate their own state OSHA programs, and they may have adopted construction standards that are different from the federal standards. Builders who live in a state that has its own State Occupational Safety and Health Plan should contact their local program administrator for further information on the construction standards applicable in their state.
