Like most large cities, Boston has requirements for keeping rooftop workers safe on the job. In Massachusetts alone, 67 workers on average die as a result of fatal occupational injuries each year. OSHA has implemented Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) in Massachusetts. FACE’s goal is to learn more about factors that contribute to fatal occupational injuries and to use this information to develop recommendations for future prevention.
OSHA continues to have jurisdiction for private sector employees and since 2018, public sector employees as well. Massachusetts also follows International Building Codes.
