Are you current on the latest OSHA regulations? Dean McKenzie, deputy director of OSHA's Directorate of Construction recently discussed OSHA's new requirements for accident reporting (enacted starting Jan. 1, 2015), temp workers, and why it's important to be a safety leader. In his talk recently, at the 2015 Remodeling Leadership Conference in Arlington, Va., he also highlighted the success of the national Safety Stand-Down campaign, held May 4-15, and commented on how to best manage relationships between construction pros and OSHA investigators.

"If you open your arms and say 'yeah, com on in, let's see what's going on,' and your attitude is that, you're going to get a whole lot more than fightin' about it ..." said McKenzie.
