Anytime you are doing construction, the work can be dangerous and you must follow specific standards for health and safety. These standards must comply with building code and safety regulations.
The state or county can come out and randomly inspect your job site to decide if you are following all guidelines. These include things such as visiting with employees, auditing records, and demanding proof of compliance.
In the event, you fail to meet the building and safety guidelines a stop work order is issued. This is given to shutdown the work until all of the issues are resolved. The key to avoiding a stop work order is to know what they are and how it applies. Here are the most critical things you want to know about a stop work order in Palm Beach County.
When does a Stop Work Order Apply?
A stop work order is a contractual tool that uses the contract to show you are not following different provisions of it. The order is given when inspectors feel that you are deviating from health, safety, and building code requirements.
Once you receive the stop work order, all work must cease until you have made the necessary changes to comply.
The stop work order is a part of the contract and can be issued when the inspectors feel you are not meeting your obligations.
