Contractors today must comply with many of the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration's (OSHA) safety standards. OSHA has the authority
to carry out regular inspections of all construction companies and jobsites
and can issue citations and fines for non-compliance which can run as high
as $10,000 per day.
The Personnel Safety Handbook was designed by the AFSA Safety Committee
in cooperation with CNA Insurance to help contractors avoid such high penalties.
This booklet can help remind your employees about basic safety procedures.
But, each company should also have a safety program established.
