OSHA, BOCES Form Safety Training Alliance

OSHA has formed an alliance with the Wayne Finger Lakes Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to provide students in Wayne, Seneca, Ontario, and Yates counties with information and training to reduce workplace hazards.

Under the alliance, OSHA and BOCES will work together to develop training and education programs for senior and junior high school students and adults enrolled in various vocational studies programs, including construction and automotive technology and repair. The alliance will include delivery of training courses on construction and general industry safety and health.

"This alliance is an excellent opportunity to provide tomorrow's workers with the knowledge to recognize and eliminate work-related hazards that they can take with them into any workplace," said Robert Kulick, OSHA's regional administrator in New York.

"These students will be able to carry this invaluable safety and health information with them into their new careers," added Christopher Adams, OSHA's area director in Syracuse.

The alliance partners also will share information on best practices, conduct outreach activities, and encourage BOCES students and others to participate in OSHA's cooperative programs and build relationships with OSHA's area and regional offices on safety and health issues.

The alliance was signed by Kulick and Adams for OSHA, along with District Superintendent Dr. Joseph Marinelli and Career and Technical Education Director Dr. John Boronkay for Wayne Finger Lakes BOCES.
