Safety Partnership Signing Ceremony Tomorrow at Savannah State U

OSHA is entering into a partnership with Holder Construction Co. and the Georgia Tech Onsite Consultation Program to improve workplace safety and health for employees involved in the construction of a new academic building at Savannah State University in Savannah, Ga. One aspect of this agreement requires participating employers to provide effective training on worksite safety and health issues to non-English speaking employees.

"The primary goals of this agreement are to reduce employee injuries and illnesses, and eliminate fatalities during this major construction project," said John Deifer, director of OSHA's Savannah Area Office.

A signing ceremony celebrating the safety partnership will take place at Savannah State University's Academic Building site tomorrow, Aug. 12, at 11 a.m. EDT. The public and members of the media are encouraged to attend.

More than 1.4 million employees and more than 26,000 employers across the U.S. have participated with OSHA in 534 Strategic Partnerships since the program began in 1998. Individuals interested in learning more about OSHA's outreach efforts in the Savannah area should contact OSHA's Savannah Area Office, 450 Mall Blvd., Suite J; telephone (912) 652-4393.
