The harmful substances construction workers encounter include asbestos, lead, and respirable crystalline silica. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces workplace standards to reduce exposure to these hazards.
This dashboard examines OSHA citations for violations of standards related to asbestos (CFR 1910.1001 and CFR 1926.1101), lead (CFR 1910.1025 and CFR 1926.62), and silica (CFR 1910.1053 and CFR 1926.1153) in the construction industry. These standards are federal; violations of state regulations are not included in this dashboard. Data are from the U.S. Department of Labor OSHA Enforcement Data.
Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.
You can download the data as a spreadsheet. Each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data are available, with the next update scheduled for Summer 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
