DAYSTAR SAFETY SERVICES
Missouri House Bill HB 1549 (Section 292.675). Effective August 28th, 2009.

Contractors and subcontractors who contract to work on public works projects in the State of Missouri shall provide a ten-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) construction safety program [for their on-site employees] which includes a course in construction safety and health approved by OSHA or a similar program approved by the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations which is at least as stringent as an approved OSHA program for their on-site employees who have not completed a program previously. All on-site employees who have not completed a program previously are required to complete the program within sixty days of beginning work on such construction projects. Contactors and subcontractors in violation of this provision will forfeit to the public body $2,500 plus $100 a day for each employee who is employed without training. Public bodies and contractors may withhold assessed penalties from the payment due to those contractors and subcontractors.

Please contact us if you have any questions or need to schedule a 10-hour OSHA construction training class for your employees.
