OSHA Renews New Jersey Schools Development Authority Alliance

OSHA, the New Jersey School Development Authority (NJSDA), and the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOLWD) have renewed their alliance to promote workplace safety and health on New Jersey school construction sites during a signing ceremony at NJSDA headquarters in Trenton.

"Renewing this alliance highlights the value of maintaining collaborative relationships to foster safer and more healthful workplaces, especially on New Jersey's school construction sites," said Robert Kulick, OSHA's regional administrator in New York.

OSHA health and safety alliances are part of the agency's ongoing efforts to improve the health and safety of workers through cooperative partnerships with trade associations, labor organizations, and employers. The alliance between OSHA and NJSDA will provide NJSDA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect workers' health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to hazards on school construction sites.

"Nothing is more important than the safety of workers at our jobsites across New Jersey. This alliance not only promotes safety but will help develop programs that will be beneficial across the construction industry. I am pleased to see this important collaboration with OSHA continue," said Kris Kolluri, chief executive officer of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority.

Major goals of the alliance include developing training and education programs about construction hazards; delivering construction-related safety and health courses; and raising awareness of and demonstrating commitment to workplace safety and health for the construction industry.

New Jersey Labor Commissioner David J. Socolow stated, "Workers on these important projects deserve our full commitment to workplace safety and health. Through training and the efforts of our On-site Safety Consultation Service, we will work cooperatively to see that workers on these important construction jobs can perform their jobs safely and effectively."
