Needs and Uses The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause at 52.236–13, Accident Prevention, requires Federal construction contractors to provide and maintain work environments and procedures which will safeguard the public and Government personnel, property, materials, supplies, and equipment exposed to contractor operations and activities; avoid interruptions of Government operations and delays in project completion dates; and control costs in the performance of the contract. 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 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 139 / Friday, July 19, 2019 / Notices regulation as necessary or appropriate for the enforcement of this Act . . . .’’ (29 U.S.C. 657(c)(1)). Accordingly, OSHA has received the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearance for a number of related OMB Control Nos. When performance is on a Government facility or will involve work of a long duration or hazardous nature, before commencing the work, the contractor must submit a written proposed plan for implementing this clause, as required by alternate I of the clause. The plan shall include an analysis of the significant hazards to life, limb, and property inherent in contract work performance and a plan for controlling those hazards. C.
