Falls remain the number one cause of death in the construction industry. "We cannot tolerate workers getting killed in residential construction when effective means are readily available to prevent those deaths," OSHA Chief Dr. David Michaels said.
OSHA regulations for residential construction activities were overhauled and took effect December 16, 2010. To see the changes and how they might effect you, check out http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=DIRECTIVES&p_id=4755.
