Employer Competent Person Requirements for Construction

Per OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1926.32(f), a CP is able to identify existing and predictable workplace conditions that create a hazardous, unsanitary, and/or dangerous site for workers. The CP is also able to resolve these hazards to create a safer environment.
