OSHA, Marlette Homes Partner to Enhance Workplace Safety, Health

OSHA recently announced that it has partnered with Marlette Homes in Lewistown to assist the company in creating safety and health management systems that will protect employees from injuries and illnesses.

"This partnership will equip Marlette Homes with the tools needed to improve worker safety and health by developing systems designed to help both management and employees more effectively identify, reduce, and eliminate workplace hazards," said Bryan Seal, director of OSHA's area office in Harrisburg, Pa.

Marlette Homes specializes in building, selling, financing, and insuring manufactured homes.

As part of the partnership agreement, Marlette Homes will promote, institute, and maintain a safety and health management system based on OSHA guidelines including management, leadership, and employee involvement; risk analysis; hazard prevention and control; and training. The company also will work to reduce or maintain its injury and illness rates to levels that make it eligible to apply for OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs in two years.

This partnership will be in effect for two years. For more information, contact OSHA's Harrisburg Area Office at 717-782-3902.
