Streamlining OSHA 1910 Compliance Process

Brian Rivers, PE, PM&A clarified a few key points on how A1 Orange and PM&A will work together to simplify and expedite the OSHA 1910 compliance process for our business partners and allow servicing to continue.
  • Since many property owners/managers were unable to meet OSHA 1910 roof anchorage certification and fall protection requirements by November 20, 2017, OSHA has provided for an extension of this deadline and servicing of these buildings. They must provide documentation that they are in the process of having their property evaluated, and are making plans to bring it into compliance – due diligence.
  • Working with A1 Orange, PM&A will visit your property and develop a proposal for the testing/inspections required to meet OSHA 1910’s requirements. If additional equipment is needed, they may also be able to provide a proposal for these services. This proposal satisfies OSHA’s due diligence requirement.
  • OSHA 1910 safety compliance impacts any contractor (i.e. HVAC, roofing, replacement windows, exterior building services) whose work involves walking around on your roof and/or attaching to your anchors to do work on the side of your building or for personal fall restraint systems. They are not legally allowed to perform work near unprotected roof edges if your fall protection equipment has not been tested and inspected or isn’t in the due diligence process described above.


Founded in 2006, PM&A is a multi-discipline engineering firm based in Atlanta, Georgia, that works with property managers and building owners to develop façade access and rooftop safety equipment solutions. PM&A shares key values with A1 Orange, including a commitment to fast response, excellent customer service, and high-quality work. Find more information on PM&A here.

OSHA Heat Safety Tips

For companies such as A1 Orange, where many team members spend hours each day in the heat and under the scorching sun, it’s important to review heat safety rules regularly. Here is a PDF version of these OSHA Heat Safety Tips that you can post where your workers can see them daily.

Avoid Caffeine and Alcohol – Caffeine and alcohol contribute to dehydration due to their diuretic effect. Avoid or limit caffeine when working outside, especially during the hot summer months.

Drink Water Often – Do not wait until you are thirsty to take a break and drink water. You should be drinking small amounts of water frequently to avoid dehydration. Two to four cups of water every hour — every 15 minutes is recommended by OSHA.

Limit Work During Middle of the Day – If possible, work outside in the morning or late evenings when the temperature is not as high.

Take Breaks – Take breaks to rest in the shade every couple of hours to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

Wear the Appropriate Clothing – Wear light colored, lose-fitting clothing, eye protection, sunscreen, and a hat when working outside.

Learn the Signs of Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke – Watch for these signs in yourself and in your co-workers.

  • Signs of Heat Exhaustion*:  Dizziness, headache, sweaty skin, weakness, cramps, nausea and/or vomiting and fast heart beat
  • Signs of Heat Stroke*:  Red, hot, dry skin, high temperature, confusion, convulsions and fainting
