How many of you wear shorts on your jobs?
(Denim shorts, cartpenters shorts...)

Does OSHA allow shorts in any construction trade?

I've never worn shorts on a job.

Crawling in an attic or muddy crawlspace ain't conducive to shorts.

In the summer every day. I keep a pair of long pants in the truck for crawl jobs.

all the time in the summer, i overheat and get lightheaded pretty easy. i keep a pair of long pants or coveralls in the truck for attic or crawlspace work or the ever present attack of skeeters that are occasionally not affected by repellent.

What about winter: who wears "carharts or insul bibs" or what about shutdown temp" or a min temp to pull wire or rope?

No, I never wear shorts at work, most contractors wouldn't allow it anyway.

almost never wear shorts to work, unless im doing some odd carpentry job, or digging...and lots of it. and i keep a pair of coveralls in the truck for those great attics and crawlspaces too...or the wonderful times when someone calls with an emergency and im out in halfway decent clothes and dont wanna stop off and change

To me it does not look very professional when one is the service business. If one is in the new construction business and doesn't see the client all the time i guess that would be O.K.

But what does OSHA say about this?

Edward
