Course Description

This program was recorded on August 17, 2018

In 1970, the Occupational Safety and Health Act became law in order to protect the health and well-being of workers in the United States. This course will discuss, in detail, the construction standards (29 CFR 1926) of the OSH Act of 1970. Despite the construction field currently being highly regulated, injuries in the construction field still continue at an alarming rate resulting in personal injury cases, workers’ compensation cases, and disputes against penalties imposed by OSHA. This course will give those in the legal profession an overview of the construction standards of the OSH Act, the preventative measures taken by the industry to avoid injuries, common injuries on the job site, and legal strategies that may help personal injury attorneys in court.
