Superior Court Limits PA Prompt Payment Law

Owners and contractors on Pennsylvania construction projects are familiar with the Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act (“CASPA”). CASPA requires owners to pay contractors in accordance with the terms of their contract, and for contractors to pay subcontractors in accordance with the terms of the subcontract.  If payments are not timely made without a good faith reason, CASPA allows an unpaid contractor or subcontractor to recover (in addition to the amount owed) interest at the rate of 1% per month, penalties at the rate of 1% per month, and attorney’s fees incurred to collect payment.

Safety in the Workplace

The time change is also a great time to test the alarms to ensure they are working properly and change your batteries.

Remember! Smoke alarms save lives. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out.

Key Internal Controls for Contractors

The construction industry is a risky one. While contractors can’t do much about economic ups and downs, they can make sure their companies have strong internal controls to help guard against business risks.  

In an uncertain environment, well-run companies that have strong controls in place are more likely to gain the confidence of sureties, lenders, and customers/owners. There are several important construction-specific areas you should focus on.

OSHA’s new Confined Spaces for Construction, 29 CFR 1926.1200

The new standard for confined spaces in construction became effective August 3, 2015. Employers engaged in construction on job sites or facilities where confined spaces are located or will occur as a result of construction activities have obligations under this standard to perform certain activities and protect their workers.

Confined spaces may include areas such as bins, boilers, tanks, pits (such as those for elevators, escalators, valves or pumps), sewers (such as storm drains, those for electrical, communication or other utilities), transformer vaults, heating, ventilation and air-condition ducts (HVAC), water mains, precast concrete, enclosed beams, pre-formed manhole units and more.
