OSHA Renews Alliance with the Construction Institute

OSHA recently renewed its alliance with the Construction Institute (CI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The alliance will continue encouraging employers in the construction industry to incorporate safety and health information and training resources into their work processes.

"In an industry that has among the highest rates for injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, it is the goal of this alliance to develop products and materials that increase safety and health awareness," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "OSHA is pleased to once again join forces with the Construction Institute as we work to reduce and prevent workplace hazards for construction employees."

Through the OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable, CI has worked with a number of other alliance program participants to develop resources addressing construction industry issues and hazards. For example, CI updated the "Design for Construction Safety" presentation, which alliance program representatives delivered to more than 530 safety design professionals during various meetings and conferences. The presentation informs the public about the process of addressing site safety and health in the design of a construction project.

Also, CI continually updates its "Design for Construction Safety" Web site (www.designforconstructionsafety.org), which was developed to provide information on the barriers to designing for safety and solutions for overcoming those barriers.
