OSHA Renews Alliance with Altec Industries

The Birmingham, Ala.-based company provides equipment and services, including safety training, for electric utilities, telecommunications, contractors, and tree care companies.

OSHA has renewed its long-standing alliance with Altec Industries Inc., a leading provider of equipment and services for electric utilities, telecommunications, contractors, and tree care companies, for two more years. The company's units provide safety training and financing, with its reach extending to more than 100 countries, according to Altec.

For instance, its Altec Sentry program is a division that trains operators of Altec equipment including bucket trucks, forest trucks, and telescopic cranes; its Global Rental Company Inc. rents all types of equipment of those industries; and its Altec Service Group provides shop and mobile service from 18 service centers nationwide.

Dated June 14, the OSHA announcement said the alliance aims to prevent worker injuries and deaths in the industries Altec serves, specifically from hazards including falls, electrocutions, tipovers, and others related to operating cranes, chippers, digger derricks, and insulated and non-insulated aerial devices.

"We value Altec's collaborative efforts to reach out to vulnerable workers with information and training that will help keep them safe on the job and exercise their rights," OSHA Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels said.

Altec Sentry has trained some 20,000 workers to use equipment properly and according to the latest industry standards. "Safety has always been our top priority at Altec," Chairman/CEO Lee Styslinger III has said. "Altec Sentry is a vital component to the way we do business by supporting and caring for our customers."
