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.
Those of you who are in residential construction noted that when they updated the confined space entry standard a while back, it included residential construction. This industry had been somewhat overlooked by OSHA in the past. They have updated some of their materials to be more clear as to what is expected.
This took some work, but I compiled nearly everything I could find from OSHA on residential home construction – which we all know is largely lacking in safety. This is a large number of documents – but if you are a home builder, this is necessary.
Yes – there are a lot of documents – but this covers many different subjects, and mostly English and Spanish.
