OSHA Forms New Alliance with American Fire Sprinkler Association

The American Fire Sprinkler Association and OSHA formed a brand new alliance Sept. 25 aimed at reducing and preventing exposure to material handling, as well as fall hazards and issues related to motor vehicle safety. The partnership will develop training and educational programs addressing these hazards and communicate information through exhibits, conferences, and Web sites developed by both OSHA and AFSA.

“Serious injuries can occur while performing tasks commonly associated with fire sprinkler installation. It is our goal to provide useful information and resources to protect the safety and health of these employees,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin Foulke Jr. “We are pleased to join with an organization that strongly believes in promoting safe work practices among its organization’s members and others working in this industry.”

AFSA is an international association, organized in 1981, which provides open shop fire sprinkler contractors with education, consultation, and industry representation. Working with government agencies, AFSA said it helps create awareness of fire hazards and promotes how fire sprinkler installation reduces costs, and most importantly, saves lives.

AFSA President Steve Muncy said, “In forming this alliance, the American Fire Sprinkler Association, and its 900 contractor members, look forward to a positive relationship with OSHA, working together to develop, promote, and implement continued safe practices in the fire sprinkler industry. This model cooperative relationship between government and industry will benefit employers and employees alike.”
