DISCLAIMER: This plan is intended for contractors who build or remodel residential construction and provide the training included in this plan to their employees. If your company does tasks beyond the scope of this document (such as welding, working with lead-based paint, confined space work, and so forth), you will not be in compliance with safety training or requirements. More information is available at to find additional requirements. You must "do" the things in this document and your employees must be familiar with all aspects to be considered in compliance during a field audit. This plan does not meet every standard applicable to residential construction, but it meets many of the requirements. The list below represents many of the plans and training you may need in addition to this Monthly Safety Calendar. A pdf version of this plan with live links to forms, training, and other information can be found at
