    Builders Urge Congress To Enact OSHA Reform To Improve Worker Safety And Housing Affordability National Association of Home Builders
    Current rules that permit OSHA to assess a violation up to six months after an inspection creates uncertainty for home builders and does little to improve worker safety, Pressly said.

    "There have been many cases where home builders have received citations from OSHA five months and 28 days after an inspection. Typically, a house takes approximately 90 days to build. When the home is no longer under construction and turned over to its new owner, it makes it impossible for employees and supervisors to correct a violation or teach their workers how to properly fix the hazard," said Pressly.
