Louisiana Construction Site Regulations

Louisiana Construction Site Regulations

Every employer, no matter what industry, has a responsibility to their employees to maintain a clean and safe work environment. To help determine guidelines and standards for what these conditions are, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) was created.

If you were involved in a Louisiana construction accident, your employer may have been violating OSHA standards that resulted in your injury. A violation of OSHA standards is a serious offense and can substantially increase your potential settlement. An experienced Louisiana construction accident lawyer understands how OSHA regulations and violations can impact your individual claim and can help you build a solid case.

OSHA Regulations

Louisiana does not have an OSHA-approved and moderated state plan. Instead, they rely on on-site regulation from the federal OSHA administration through area offices and consultation project offices. This means workplaces are regulated according to OSHA federal standards.

OSHA focuses on general safety including the use of proper clothing and protective gear, as well as barricades and warning signs. Some of the more serious safety measures include:

  • Limiting exposure to hazardous substances
  • “Buddy-system” and air regulations for workers in confined spaces
  • Reporting standards for workers dealing with unannounced hazardous materials
  • Bloodborne pathogen handling regulations
  • Process safety management
