The Official Online Weekly Newspaper of NAHB
An upcoming free webinar from NAHB will provide NAHB members and home builders associations with important information on dealing with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s recent stepped-up enforcement actions and increased penalties.
As has been reported previously, OSHA has made stepping up its enforcement efforts a priority.
While in past years commercial contractors were subject to the most inspections, residential builders are now routinely receiving inspections by OSHA.
The webinar — “How to Prepare for an OSHA Inspection” — will be held on Sept. 13 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT.
The webinar will touch on a number of topics, including the rights of employers during an OSHA inspection, suggestions on what to do during the actual inspection, determining when to contest citations and how to obtain penalty reductions, and what legally recognized defenses to OSHA citations employers can use, specifically as they relate to recent changes in the fall protection requirements.
NAHB members can register for the free webinar at www.nahb.org/oshawebinar.
The video provides an overview of the key safety issues that residential builders and workers need to focus on to reduce accidents and injuries.
Based on the NAHB-OSHA Jobsite Safety Handbook, this DVD is intended to be used as part of an essential residential construction safety-training program and includes two 20-minute videos on one DVD.
