OSHA Continues Alliance with Lamar Outdoor Advertising
OSHA renewed it for two additional years.
Lamar Outdoor Advertising has renewed its alliance with OSHA, teaming the two organizations to increase safety for workers in the transportation and construction industries.
"OSHA and Lamar have collaborated in promoting nationwide awareness of heat illness prevention, struck-by hazards, work stand-downs, and distracted driving," Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels said in a statement. "Our renewed Alliance will continue our commitment to provide training, educational, and outreach tools that promote worker safety."
In this collaboration, OSHA and Lamar will work together to develop training for OSHA compliance officers who encounter scenarios in the outdoor advertising field. Additionally Lamar will promote OSHA activites such as its National Emphasis Programs.
"Lamar is very excited to be part of the Alliance Program. We believe that the Alliance between Lamar and OSHA represents a real opportunity to advance safety education within our industry," Chuck Wigger, corporate safety director for Lamar Advertising Company, said in a statement last week. "In addition, we look forward to promoting agency initiatives and training opportunities for agency staff."
OSHA's Alliance program promotes safety in specialized industries and works with consultants and companies within those fields to develop safety standards and awareness catering to that field.
