Construction in Illinois Gets a Safety Boost

OSHA, along with the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity's Onsite Safety and Health Consultation Program, and the Greater Peoria Contractors and Suppliers Association have developed an alliance to focus on safety and health issues in the construction industry. The groups signed the formal alliance last week at the Peoria Civic Center during the Downstate Illinois Occupational Safety and Health Conference in Peoria.

"We would like to ensure all construction companies--big and small--are prepared to effectively control the workplace hazards their employees may encounter," said Nick Walters, OSHA's area director in Peoria. "We believe this alliance will foster a working relationship that will ensure employers develop effective safety and health programs, and make employees aware of work hazards and ways to prevent serious injuries."

The alliance requires each organization to contribute to the development of training sessions and materials to improve workplace safety and health. The groups vowed to share resources and information to raise awareness of and commitment to this topic.
