OSHA and Construction in the City

 

Living in the city is never boring and not without a story to be told. I’ve had he fortune or misfortune to have a construction site right outside my window. Now having been in construction for a majority of my life I’m aware of what is and what is not acceptable building practices.

The project next door was adding space to what was once a flat roof, for over a year now this group has not only taken valuable parking away from those that live and work in the area but, has created a dangerous zone to be anywhere near. How dangerous you ask? These moron’s were slinging steel beams to the roof of the building next door and NOT ONE of these workers was wearing a hard hat. I was stupefied! Of course not at any time during the construction was the name of the actual contractor visible, not on any of the trucks nor on any of the workers apparel.

Now I’m not one to go and become a stool pigeon on this group but, I would like the ear of the owner to ask, what was gained by not enforcing hard hat compliance”? Did this outweigh the consequences of having to tell one of your workers family that their loved one was not coming home because your supervisor was an idiot?

I often question the actions of those on my job site, and if unsatisfied with their ability to “THINK” while on the job site, they become unemployed. There is a sound reason for OHSA regulations. Now I’m not saying that if one of those I beams came crashing down that a simple hard hat would prevent any serious injury. However, there are many accidents which occur while performing perilous tasks on the job site.

How does this affect me as a home builder? When your super or PM is on a job site and noticed infractions of safety and does not report it, you’re as guilty as the party in noncompliance. More importantly your insurance is also on the line. How can you protect yourself? Daily Reports, they can assist in documenting your issues with subs and suppliers on the job.

What is at risk? Your liability insurance rate and OHSA fines, even if the vendor is insured your part of the lawsuit and without proper documentation, may find it difficult to prove you were not a participant of the infraction.

Why a Daily report? A quality construction management system will have a Daily report built right into the system and allow for a history of events taking place on your project from day one.

Most people actually won't know what is and isn't acceptable practices in a big construction yard, but I imagine that people would be a lot more concerned if there are big externalities like noise, pollution and traffic issues. My office movers in Sydney have actually faced big problems when it comes to getting around the city when they know there are big construction project in the vicinity..
