The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has launched a Web page containing information and tips specifically related to safety and health for workers in the residential construction industry. The Web site was created with guidance and assistance from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

The OSHA residential construction safety Web pages were created as part of the OSHA-NAHB Alliance that was formed in May 2003. The site provides building industry professionals with information about electrical safety, fall protection, fire safety, hand and power tool safety, scaffolding, personal protective equipment, safety programs and more.

It also features detailed information and links to OSHA enforcement and training information, including interpretation and compliance letters; OSHA inspections; OSHA Training Institute (OTI) and NAHB training information; and OSHA compliance information and safety publications available online.

The National Association of Home Builders is a Washington-based trade association representing more than 215,000 members involved in residential and light commercial construction.
