For these purposes on contracts for construction or dismantling, demolition, or removal of improvements, the contractor is required to provide appropriate safety barricades, signs, and signal lights; comply with the standards issued by the Secretary of Labor at 29 CFR part 1926 and 29 CFR part 1910; and ensure that any additional measures the contracting officer determines to be reasonably necessary for the purposes are taken. Whenever the contracting officer becomes aware of any noncompliance with these requirements or any condition which poses a serious or imminent danger to health or safety, the contracting officer shall provide a notice to the contractor and request immediate corrective action. Per FAR 36.513, the contracting officer should inform the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Administration (OSHA), or other cognizant Federal, State, or local officials, of instances where the contractor has been notified to take immediate action to correct serious or imminent dangers. With regard to recordkeeping, the OSH Act specifies that ‘‘[e]ach employer shall make, keep and preserve, and make available to the Secretary . . . such records . . . as the Secretary . . . may prescribe by E:\FR\FM\19JYN1.SGM 19JYN1
