It involves the clothing that your employees, vendors, or contractors elect to wear to work while completing a construction job – an area often difficult to police.

Wearing the wrong clothes can have deadly consequences for employees working at great heights, on slippery surfaces, or with sharp or super-heated materials. So, the government gets very specific about what can and can’t be worn. You can see the full regulation by visiting the OSHA website.

The regulation has several subsections, which include:

It is also important to note that the required clothing or equipment can be waived if it can be proved that it is having the opposite effect.

If the clothing ends up putting the employee at risk or exposing them to hazardous materials, then the requirement can be waived.

Additionally, OSHA does not mandate whether the employer, the contractor or vendor should be the entity paying for the employee’s safety equipment, including shoes.

It indicates only the protective gear/clothing be present – not who is responsible for procuring it. If there are violations, however, the employer/contractor is liable for the fines, not the employee.
