The Illinois Onsite Safety and Health Consultation Program is also a partner in the project.

OSHA announced a new strategic partnership with Ringland-Johnson, the general contractor, and the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters to help construction workers on the Woodward Rock Cut Campus in Loves Park, Ill.

"The partnership aims to meet these goals through increased training, implementation of best work practices, site-specific written safety and health programs, and compliance with applicable OSHA standards and regulations."

This project will construct a 435,000-square-foot manufacturing building -- a two-story office, a medical/dental clinic, a cafeteria, and a new data center. It will be completed in Decmber 2014. Some 200 workers will working during the peak of construction during the project.

The partnership aims to prevent falls, struck-by injuries, and trenching and electrical hazards. As part of the agreement, all contractors and subcontractors on the project will be required to submit site-specific written safety and health programs and pre-task work plans, according to OSHA.
