OSHA Renews Alliance with Steel Erectors Association, Iron Workers Union

OHSA recently announced a renewed alliance with the Steel Erectors Association of Metropolitan Philadelphia and Vicinity Inc. and the Iron Workers Local Union No. 401. OSHA and its alliance partners will continue to promote workplace safety and health, and provide guidance and training resources for steel erection workers.

"The first two years of our alliance have been a tremendous success," said Al D’Imperio, director of OSHA's Philadelphia Area Office, who represented the agency at the recent signing ceremony at 401 Union Hall in Philadelphia. "With fall hazards a leading cause of death in the construction industry, we will keep working closely with our alliance partners to identify methods for reducing falls and other hazards."

Since its inception in November of 2008, the alliance has provided safety and health cross-training sessions to more than 1,000 steel erection workers and safety and health professionals in the Philadelphia area.

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. These groups include unions, consulates, trade or professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, businesses and educational institutions. OSHA and the groups work together to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, and to educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities. Alliance Program participants do not receive exemptions from OSHA programmed inspections.
