DEMOLITION SAFETY QUESTIONS? ASK OSHA!
When you hire a demolition specialist to take care of a project for you, you are in luck because you do not have to take care of all of the hard work and tricky details yourself. However, you may want to know a bit more about the demolition process, especially as far as safety is concerned. One excellent resource for demolition safety concerns is the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) website.
Curious what the safety standards are when it comes to demolition work? You do not have to guess or trust potentially inaccurate information posted online. The standards are all listed on the OSHA website. Not only is there a list of all demolition standards but related construction standards have been organized so you can easily view and reference these when needed. While you may not have a need to memorize these rules yourself, it is always nice to have an accurate reference.
In addition to providing the standards, the OSHA site also provides resources that can help you with understanding and interpreting these (often complex) regulations. This includes links to fact sheets, safety cards, press releases and other tools that may help you with understanding what is happening with your demolition project.
Finally, OSHA realizes that other organizations and websites have published useful and beneficial information too. That is why the agency offers a large number of additional resources. While not published directly by OSHA, this information is trustworthy and can be a big help as you plan or execute a demolition job.
As you can see, OSHA has made demolition safety a priority. OSHA regularly revises standards to ensure that demolition companies are all on the same page when it comes to safety.
