Preface

 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published this document to assist residential construction employers and employees in providing safe and healthful workplaces. This publication identifies OSHA standards applicable to the hazards most commonly found at work sites in the residential construction industry and those most likely to have a significant positive impact on the safety and health practices of contractors within this industry.

 

This publication does not itself alter or determine compliance responsibilities as contained in OSHA standards and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. Consequently, OSHA notes that other standards not included in this document remain applicable to the residential construction industry and abatement actions must be implemented by the contractor.
