OSHA has some great materials on working in residential construction. Guidance in this area is necessary, as most of the materials and training out there are for larger construction sites. OSHA is now focusing my more heavily on residential construction, so the materials below are quite necessary.
No really – this is from North Carolina OSHA. A huge amount of safety programs covering nearly everything. This time I don’t expect you to download everything – just as much as you really need. Have fun.
Traffic from the UK was heavy and I received several comments like, “Good materials, but we will have to adapt them to the UK.” Well, seeing as the traffic was heavy, and this all about the safety of workers on the job, I did a little bit of looking and found where the Queen hides her safety materials. At least some of them. So here they are. Not all, obviously, but, a basic selection. Now that I have raided her coffers, I will add more in the future. If people across the pond know of more good materials, feel free to forward and I will post.
For those in the USA and elsewhere – regulations from the UK are normally at, or above what the USA requires. So instead of doing ‘the minimum,’ why not give this a look see? It won’t kill you (no pun).
