Kansas Construction Companies Targeted for Inspection by Zip Code
OSHA recently announced the start of a local emphasis program in Kansas aimed at reducing workplace hazards on residential and commercial construction sites. The agency says its goal with this local emphasis program is to reduce employee exposures to hazards on construction sites through increased awareness and enforcement activities.
Under the program, OSHA will randomly select geographical areas by zip code within the state. Cities with a population of 8,000 and greater will be eligible for inspection, and all active residential and commercial sites within a selected zip code will be inspected. The agency said it will conduct comprehensive safety and health inspections to identify hazardous work exposures. Additionally, safety and health programs, training records, air monitoring surveys, and noise surveys will be reviewed as applicable.
