Is Your Construction Project OSHA Compliant?
Boise construction company Alta Construction faces proposed OSHA fines of $106,000 for endangering workers by failing to follow safe trenching practices while building a 644-parking space garage, the Idaho Statesman reported. OSHA has stepped up its vigilance of trenching violations following the death of two workers and the injury of another when a trench collapsed in northwest Boise in May 2016.
As this illustrates, if you’re running a construction project, OSHA violations can be costly as well as dangerous to your workers. But OSHA requirements are extensive, and keeping your project in accordance with all the applicable regulations can be a daunting undertaking. Remain OSHA compliant so that neither your workers’ health nor your company’s finances face undue risk.
