OSHA has been more aggressive about citing general contractors it believes have not taken adequate steps to monitor and police safety practices on their worksites, especially when it comes to fall protection. If the investigator sees the subcontractor's employees working without adequate fall protection, there is a good chance that both the subcontractor and the general contractor will receive citations.
The goal of the new plan is to make permitting faster and easier without compromising environmental standards, officials said. Contractors have long decried the lengthy and complicated process, which can hold up projects.
