Wisconsin Builders Ally with OSHA for Safer Residential Construction

The Wisconsin Builders Association--representing more than 9,000 member companies--have formed a safety and health alliance with OSHA to reduce injuries, illnesses, and fatalities among employees in Wisconsin's residential construction industry.

"This agreement provides an opportunity for OSHA and the association to come together and demonstrate that we all benefit when management, labor, and government dedicate themselves to providing a safe and healthful work environment," said Mark Hysell, area director of OSHA's Eau Claire office, which developed the alliance. "We want every employee to go home healthy and uninjured at the end of the day."

Participants in this alliance, announced April 10, will work to reduce serious injuries and illnesses of all employees at worksites throughout Wisconsin, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to fall, electrical, trenching, and excavation hazards associated with the residential construction industry. Special emphasis will be placed on awareness and monitoring of the safety needs of non-English speaking employees.

The Wisconsin Builders Association consists of 25 local associations across the state and represents more than 9,000 member companies involved in residential and light commercial construction, as well as subcontractors, suppliers, manufacturers, lenders, and others associated with home building.
