New OSHA Residential Construction Regulation in 2011


New OSHA Residential Construction Regulation in 2011

This Instruction cancels OSHA Instruction STD 03-00-001, the Agency's interim enforcement policy on fall protection for certain residential construction activities, and replaces it with new compliance guidance.

Not necessarily a concern of DIY's (here) but instead for those that participate here and are in the business. DIY's should also be aware of the regulation compliance necessary for those that may perform work on their property.

New OSHA Residential Construction Regulation in 2011


This started a little while ago. It isn't too much of a difference for the guys who were already following all OSHA regulations.

We have already have had the fortune of "competitors" calling OSHA on us, to no avail.

As a homeowner, you do not have to follow such guidelines.

As a homeowner you could have some exposure to liability if someone is injured while working on your property if they are not in compliance with the laws.

Yes, with your homeowners insurance, not with OSHA.

OSHA will not shut down your job if you are a homeowner doing it. I recently met with our territory OSHA representative and I asked him directly and he said as long as there is NO company, there is nothing they (osha) can do about it.

Now if you and your buddy are doing your roof together, and he falls off, he can sue you and most likely take your house from you, just like if anyone not insured can do.
