4: Develop a Jobsite Safety and Health Program
construction standards require construction employers to have accident
prevention programs that provide for frequent and regular inspection of the
jobsites, materials, and equipment by competent persons designated by the
29 CFR 1926.20(b).
OSHA's Construction Focused Inspection Policy recognizes the efforts of responsible
contractors who have implemented effective safety and health programs, and
encourages other contractors to adopt similar programs. Contractors
who have implemented effective programs are eligible for focused
inspections, should they be visited by an OSHA inspector. Focused
inspections, which are narrower in scope than comprehensive inspections,
target the leading construction hazards. See
Focused Inspections in Construction.
