Apart from the owner and general contractor of a construction site, the subcontractor is also held accountable for the safety of employees on a work site. The following are some of the safety responsibilities that fall under the subcontractor at a work site. The subcontractor needs to comply with all applicable laws, including legally binding standards, rules and regulations, regarding the health and safety of their employees at a work site. All subcontractors need to comply with the safety responsibilities, including all safety related provisions that have been mentioned in the subcontract, regardless of whether they are stricter than the federal, state or local laws. The subcontractor is also required to perform the work that’s been included in the subcontract while complying with the safety rules and regulations and any additional safety precautions that have been communicated to them by the contractor. In this case, the subcontractor is considered to be directly responsible for assuring compliance by lower-tier suppliers, vendors, and all other employees.
