New Hampshire Automotive Industry Focus of New Alliance

Reducing work-related hazards and enhancing safety and health for employees in New Hampshire's automotive sales, repair, and service industries are the goals of a new alliance among OSHA, the New Hampshire Automobile Dealers Association Workers' Compensation Trust (NHADA WCT), and the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services' (DES) safety consultation program.

According to OSHA, the alliance partners jointly will develop training and education programs for new auto industry hires regarding job-related safety and health issues. They also will work together to address specific safety and health issues identified by the alliance, communicate such information to NHADA WCT members, and encourage those members to build relationships with OSHA's Concord, N.H., Area Office to address safety and health issues.

"Knowledge of work-related hazards and safe work practices is key to identifying and eliminating occupational hazards and the injuries and illnesses that can result from such hazards," said Rosemarie Ohar, OSHA's area director for New Hampshire. "This alliance seeks to equip employers and employees in New Hampshire's automotive sales, repair, and service industry with that vital information."

The alliance, announced this week, was signed by Ohar, NHADA President Peter J. McNamara, and DES Consultation Program Manager Stephen Breyer. For more information about OSHA alliances in New Hampshire, contact the compliance assistance specialist in the agency's Concord Area Office at (603) 225-1629.
