OSHA Forms Alliance with Northeast Concrete Products Association

Reducing hazards and protecting the health and safety of employees in New England's concrete products manufacturing industry was the goal for OSHA and the Northeast Concrete Products Association (NCPA), who formed an alliance recently, pledging to work together to develop and present training programs for NCPA members and others to help them identify and eliminate the industry's dangers. In particular, training will focus on preventing hazards associated with falls, electrocution, noise, silica, work in confined spaces, and being struck by or caught in machinery.

"Knowledge is the most valuable tool in the workplace," said Marthe Kent, OSHA's New England regional administrator. "By providing employees and employers with the knowledge and ability to identify and address hazards before employees get hurt, we hope to reduce injuries and illnesses and their associated costs in human and financial capital."

The Taunton, Mass.-based NCPA is a not-for-profit association representing manufacturers of precast concrete products, as well as companies that provide equipment, supplies, and services to the industry. NCPA was formed in 1998 and serves Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The alliance encourages NCPA members to build relationships with OSHA's regional and area offices and to participate in OSHA's cooperative programs including the Voluntary Protection Programs, safety consultation, and the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.
