Aug. 30, 2004: OSHA Launches Safety Web Page For Residential Construction

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has launched a Web page containing information and tips specifically related to safety and health for workers in the residential construction industry. The Web site was created with guidance and assistance from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

According to OSHA, its Residential Construction Safety and Health Web page features information about OSHA standards that apply to residential construction as well as the hazards present in residential construction and solutions available to the industry.

"This new OSHA Web page focuses on residential construction industry-specific safety and health information that can help employers and workers establish and maintain safer worksites," said OSHA Administrator John Henshaw.

"Working with OSHA has given NAHB the opportunity to leverage our association's resources in order to maximize worker protections," said Bobby Rayburn, NAHB president.

The OSHA residential construction safety Web page was created as part of the OSHA-NAHB alliance that was formed in May 2003. The site provides building industry professionals with information on electrical safety, fall protection, fire safety, hand and power tool safety, scaffolding, personal protective equipment, safety programs, and more.

It also provides detailed information and links to OSHA enforcement and training information, including interpretation and compliance letters; OSHA inspections; OSHA Training Institute (OTI) and NAHB training information; and OSHA compliance information and safety publications available online.

To visit the OSHA Residential Construction Safety and Health Web page, go to www.osha.gov/SLTC/residential/index.html.
