Boston expands construction safety requirements

November 1, 2023

The ordinance gives ISD the enforcement capacity to now issue violations, stop work, revoke permits and impose fines up to $300 on permit holders, developers, general contractors, construction managers and subcontractors found to be in non-compliance with the ordinance.

Along with that increased enforcement ability, the city of Boston will also provide training, tools and resources to ensure the successful implementation of the ordinance. To do this, the Worker Empowerment Cabinet, a government agency tasked with enhancing Boston’s workforce, will host a series of webinars to inform permit applicants and contractors about the ordinance requirements and compliance from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Nov. 14 and Nov. 29.
