OSHA Regulations for Construction Vehicles
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates construction
Safety and Health Regulations for Construction, OSHA outlines rules for large trucks and other commercial construction
vehicles. These regulations include things like requirements for emergency
brakes, head and taillights, and audible warning devices.
Backover incidents are particularly a danger in the construction industry, so OSHA has standards
particularly for backing. This includes regulations that prevent a driver
from operating a vehicle with an obstructed view to the rear, backing
up only when sounding warning alarm, and backing up only when an observer
signals that it is safe to do so.
