OSHA Allies with NCSE; Achieving Best Practices in Construction a Goal

OSHA and the National Construction Safety Executives have formed a new Alliance to provide employees in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources to protect and encourage employee safety and health.

"The Alliance between OSHA and NCSE further solidifies our commitment to protecting the safety and health of employees, particularly those new to the construction industry," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "Together, we will serve as a leading resource in communicating standards and guidelines designed to reduce worksite injuries and accidents."

The OSHA and NCSE alliance will focus on falls, electrical, struck-by, and caught in-between hazards. The alliance's outreach and communication efforts include developing information to identify and prevent workplace hazards and effective tools to convey that information. With the assistance of OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals, the most effective practices and approaches will be publicized through outreach materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures. In addition, alliance members will promote national dialogue on workplace safety and health by participating in forums, roundtable discussions, and stakeholder meetings to forge innovative solutions to hazards in the construction industry.

"The members of the National Construction Safety Executives organization are very pleased to enter into this cooperative initiative with OSHA," said Brad Giles, corporate vice president, Environmental Safety and Health, Washington Group International and NCSE member. "The member companies represent the management of over 600 million hours of construction in the United States each year. We are committed to sharing our collective knowledge and best practices for the improvement of safety in our industry. This alliance provides a great venue for this sharing to occur."
