OSHA Renews Alliance with Airline Ground Safety Panel

Focused on improving safety for airline ground workers, the two-year alliance aims to prevent struck-by injuries, slips and falls, and chemical exposures.

OSHA has renewed its alliance with the Airline Ground Safety Panel. Working to eradicate injuries related to operating aviation ground support equipment such as hi-lift trucks and pushback tugs, the alliance has OSHA working with the panel, which consists of 11 airline companies and three unions that employ and represent 350,000 workers, about 85 percent of the industry, according to OSHA's announcement.

In the span of this two-year collaboration, the alliance will compile data about hazards facing these workers, including slips and falls and issues associated with GHS, the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, according to the notice.

"We look forward to working with the panel to educate and train employers and workers on preventing workplace injuries," said OSHA Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels.

The three unions are the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, the AFL-CIO's Transportation Trades Department, and the Transport Workers Union of America.
