Central Ohio Builders Partner with OSHA, Agree to Share Best Practices
The goals of a partnership between OSHA and the Associated Builders and Contractors Inc. (ABC), Central Ohio Chapter, are to reduce injuries and other worksite hazards, develop stronger training programs, and enhance safety and health in the building industry within central Ohio.
ABC represents nearly 25,000 merit shop construction and construction-related businesses in 78 chapters across the United States. The association's Central Ohio Chapter has nearly 140 local member companies.
"The principal focus of this partnership will be working together to share best practices, and to develop and implement safety and health programs to contractors and construction employees," said Deborah Zubaty, OSHA's area director in Columbus. "If we can provide these employers and their employees with the knowledge and ability to anticipate, identify, and eliminate work-related hazards, we will get that much closer to eliminating job-related injuries."
