New Façade Rules in Effect February 20th
The final version of the newly amended rule governing exterior wall inspections and repairs has been published in The City Record and will be in effect on February 20, 2020. Façade Inspection & Safety Program reports will now require more up-close, hands-on inspections, as well as enhanced experience requirements for privately contracted Qualified Exterior Wall Inspectors (QEWI), increased penalties for property owners who fail to make repairs to unsafe façade conditions, and a new requirement for landlords to post information on the status of the façade in the lobby of the building.
OSHA Form 300A Reminder
Employers are reminded that they must post their 2019 Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses ( Form 300A ) from February 1 to April 30. These requirements are intended to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses, and the data helps OSHA identify safety and health hazards and trends in order to more effectively target its enforcement and inspection efforts.
