Compressors are in frequent use on construction sites, and due to their inherent potential danger, guidelines for their safe use have been established by OSHA. These guidelines govern the standard operating procedures of supervisors and workers alike, and where they are violated, accidents can occur. They may also take place as a result of malfunctioning or inadequately maintained compressors.
