Warehouse Injury Reduction Focus of New Federal Alliance

OSHA's Area Office in Eau Claire, Wis., and American Warehouse Systems in Minneapolis, a registered contractor with the federal government, will take steps to reduce and prevent injuries and illnesses in the warehouse industry through an alliance signed Monday. The partners said they will work together to develop and distribute safety and health training materials for warehousing to enable employers and employees to implement and follow best practice standards and guidelines, and that they will promote these materials at conferences, meetings, and other local events as well as through their individual Web sites and other media.

"This alliance seeks to reach employees and employers at all levels, and provide them with the knowledge and ability to anticipate, identify, and eliminate work-related hazards in warehousing," said Mark Hysell, OSHA's area director in Eau Claire.

OSHA currently has more than 470 alliances throughout the nation with organizations committed to fostering safety and health in the workplace. Employers and employees with questions about this or other OSHA partnerships or alliances may call the agency's Eau Claire Area Office at (715) 832-9019.
