$58 Million Downtown Denver Office Building Subject of Safety Pact

OSHA and Holder Construction Co. have signed a strategic partnership agreement covering the new $58-million Hines 1515 Wynkoop Office Building project in downtown Denver. More than 400 construction workers will be employed in the project, which will take about two years to complete.

The partnership formalizes a cooperative agreement between Holder and OSHA to maximize safety at this large-scale project. Holder has committed to ensuring that: all subcontractors maintain a comprehensive written workplace safety and health program; all supervisors at the site will receive at least 10 hours of safety and health training; and injury and illness rates will be held well below national averages for the construction industry. Through the partnership, OSHA has agreed to provide the site with technical assistance and training.

"OSHA's mission is to protect America's working men and women with strategic partnerships--such as the one with Holder Construction--by seeking opportunities for us to work cooperatively with employers to keep employees safe and healthy," said Herb Gibson, OSHA's Denver Area Office director, who signed the partnership agreement on behalf of the agency. More than 1.2 million employees and more than 21,000 employers across the United States have participated with OSHA in 484 Strategic Partnerships since the partnership program began in 1998.
