OSHA has just released the Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs in Construction. The recommended practices are flexible and can be adjusted to fit small and large construction companies handling short-term or multi-year projects. Working with employees to implement a program offers benefits including improvements in production and quality; greater employee morale; improved employee recruiting and retention; and a more favorable image and reputation among customers, suppliers and the community.
OSHA also initiated a Campaign for Safety & Health Programs in October to encourage all workplaces to adopt a Safety and Health Program, such as OSHA’s recommended practices and other programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards. More resources are available on the website and you may sign-on as a campaign co-sponsor.
We need your help getting these tools out, especially to small- and medium- sized contractors. Please share this information through your networks and on social media.
Thank you for your support.
