The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA) has published a new instruction for field staff entitled Inspection and
Citation Guidance for Roadway and Highway Construction Work Zones. The document
provides instructions designed to keep OSHA field staff safe while they are
inspecting these dangerous work zones, including the correct personal
protective equipment to wear, use of flashing lights on vehicles, and safe work
practices. The instruction also provides guidance to field staff on the correct
OSHA standards to cite when they observe specific safety issues.
