Water Responsibility

On a construction site is the general contractor with only site supervision responsible for providing water for the entire project or is each sub contractor responsible for their own water source ?

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ensures safe and healthful working conditions in the workplace through training and regulations.

OSHA requires potable water to be provided in all places of employment in amounts that are adequate to meet the health and personal needs of each employee. Potable water means water that is safe from toxins and meets the standard for drinking purposes set forth by state and/or municipality regulations.

Under OSHA’s Safety and Health Regulations for Construction, the prime contractor assumes the responsibility for complying with OSHA statutes. But, the prime contractor and any sub contractors may make arrangements to ensure OSHA obligations are met on the job site. If this occurs, ensuring compliance is a joint responsibility.
