Competent Person for Jobsite Safety Inspections
OSHA requires that employers on construction sites conduct safety inspections of job sites and require that a Competent Person, designated by the employer, be responsible for the completion of the inspections. More specifically a Competent Person is required to complete inspections of scaffolds, fall protection equipment and systems, trenches, confined spaces, and the list goes on.
