Pennsylvania’s Department of Labor and Industry (L&I) has revised and updated its guidance governing how to count workers on residential projects. As PBA has lobbied from the beginning and as was previously represented by the administration, exterior workers will not count against the four-workers-per-jobsite limit. The important revised answer is in response to the question “Do worker limits apply to work being done on the exterior of the property?”

We understand that four workers inside is still less than ideal for some projects; but the ability to work with crews both outside and inside a structure should allow members much more flexibility in both scheduling and complying with safety guidelines.
