New Requirements
Governor Wolf and Secretary Levine have established new requirements for you to follow on your projects and in our occupied offices. Chief among the new requirements is the need to wear a mask at all times while working. Additional requirements to follow in the event that your project is exposed to a probable or confirmed positive COVID-19 case are included in the order. 
  • All contractors should incorporate COVID-19 transmission and prevention.
  • Contractors should continually evaluate the specific hazards at their jobsites.

The Focus Four Hazards

The Focus Four Hazards have accounted for the vast majority of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry. In an effort to prevent future injuries and fatalities, OSHA, our state plans, consultation projects, and construction industry partners have initiated a “Focus Four Hazards” campaign from March through June in Region Three’s jurisdiction. The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness in the recognition, evaluation, and control of these hazards through the delivery of toolbox talks for employers to provide to their workers. These toolbox talks will be available during the campaign for employers to use at their own discretion.
