The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has renewed its Alliance with the National Safety Council (NSC) to continue enhancing worker safety and health by addressing construction hazards, injury, and illness prevention programs and motor vehicle safety.
“Our continued alliance with NSC will focus on, among other things, preventing worker injuries and fatalities from falls in construction,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels. “Falls cause more fatalities than any other hazard in the construction industry. We look forward to collaborating with the NSC to educate and train employers and workers on preventing job hazards.”
Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with unions, consulates, trade and professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, businesses, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. The purpose of each alliance is to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, and educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities.
