In November of 2017, OSHA changed the playing field by redefining maintenance and construction. Now, Building Owners are responsible for providing certified anchors for general maintenance: including window washing.
Owners can no longer push the requirements for life safety anchorages off to the contractor as “contractor-provided equipment”. Anchors require testing and certifications, annual inspections, and use plans — if you even have them. To top it all off, OSHA also requires fall protection for any unprotected elevated area.
There is a lot of confusing information to process surrounding OSHA 1910, but BECS is here to guide you to compliance.
