Regulations and Standards Applicable to the Construction Industry

OSHA regulations provide extensive and often detailed sets of rules and procedures to be followed by contractors and others working on construction sites to help ensure safe work practices. Most states have also adopted the federal standards, with many states adding their own rules and procedures. In addition, there are various associations involved either directly or indirectly with the construction industry, such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), that have developed safety and other operational standards. These association standards, while not having the same legal effect as a statute or government regulation, can still have the effect of law as they often define the standard of care to be adhered to by those in the industry.

Foley and Small will work with experts regarding such rules, regulations and standards to determine and prove whether any violation of these enactments resulted in the dangerous condition that resulted in the client’s injuries.
