Construction is one of the most heavily regulated industries. Considering the OFCCP collected over $23 million from failed audits in 2017, it’s easy to see why growth in these regulations concern construction leaders nationwide. When other regulatory agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) come into play, maintaining compliance can seem like an overwhelming task.
With the industry-wide skills gap in full swing, many construction companies are already short-staffed. Designating one or several employees to track and manage regulatory changes and create procedures based on those changes can be challenging for companies that are already experiencing a staffing shortage.
