Construction work is one of the most hazardous occupations in Maryland. It has a fatality rate four times higher than the national average. Construction workers are also at risk of injury, illness, and toxic substances. The following are some of the reasons for these risks:

  • The construction industry has not had a major safety overhaul since 1970, when OSHA was created
  • Construction sites have never been required to have safety meetings before starting work
  • Construction sites have never been required to provide safety training for workers
  • Construction sites have never had a requirement for employers to provide personal protective equipment or clothing
  • There are no rules about how often construction workers should be given breaks from hazardous conditions
  • There are no rules on how many hours construction workers can work without taking


Construction safety is a serious issue in Maryland. According to the National Safety Council, over 5,000 construction workers are injured on the job every day. The most common injuries are falls and being struck by an object.

To ensure construction safety, contractors must comply with all health and safety regulations, such as OSHA’s General Duty Clause.

MOSH promotes occupational safety and health in workplaces across Maryland through an agreement with the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). MOSH has supplemented the federal government's safety standards, covering several Maryland industries (General Industry, Construction, and Agriculture).

Site safety and health officers (SSHOs) are responsible for the safety and health of all employees on a construction site. They oversee the site, ensure that all safety rules are followed, and ensure that employees are wearing their appropriate PPE.

SSHO's duties can include:

  • Supervising the site to ensure compliance with OSHA regulations
  • Performing inspections of equipment to make sure it is safe
  • Enforcing OSHA regulations on the job site
