The Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued a new guide, "Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs in Construction."

The new guidelines don't change legal requirements or add new rules. OSHA says the guide will be most helpful to small and mid-sized contractors who may not have access to training specialists and the latest safety information.

The guide offers advice for contractors to identify hazards, plan responses to emergencies, and inspect job sites to find potential safety and health issues.
