OSHA’s safety standards have been designed for the full breadth of the construction industry, but only bits and pieces of the various standards apply to operations as a painting contractor. You need to know what they are and how they effect you without spending a ton of time sifting through regulations that don’t apply to you.

Please realize that OSHA requires all of these topics to be addressed in your business at all times and does not recognize or endorse our distinctions. We provide this framework simply to help you focus your energies. We cannot be held responsible for your lack of implementation or implementation effectiveness in any way. And by the very nature of condensing thousands of pages of OSHA standards into a handful of bullet-pointed lists and written content, our program is incomplete and consequently may not be completely accurate.
