OSHA Inspection Toolkit

The construction industry has historically been deemed a high-hazard industry by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and, as a result, home builders are frequently the subject of OSHA inspections. OSHA is authorized to conduct inspections of construction job sites to determine whether employers are complying with OSHA safety standards and inspections, and investigations are conducted by OSHA compliance safety and health officers.
