El Paso AGC Chapter and OSHA Renew Partnership

The agency has renewed its 2007 partnership with the El Paso chapter of the national organization.

OSHA has renewed its strategic partnership with the El Paso Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America, according to a news release from OHSA. The agency renewed the 2007 partnership to keep in line with its ongoing efforts of keeping construction workers healthy and safe.

The partnership aims to reduce the number of illnesses, injuries, and fatalities that occurs each year, focusing in particular on struck-by hazards, caught-in-between hazards, electrocution hazards, and construction falls. Other goals include implementing safety and health programs, decreasing employees' injury and illness rates, and keeping an open dialogue between OSHA and its partners.

"This partnership reflects our mutual recognition of the importance of construction workers' safety and health and solidifies our cooperative goal to develop effective safety programs while improving communication," said Diego Alvarado, OSHA's acting area director in El Paso. "Together, we will take an aggressive and positive approach to put workplace safety and health at the forefront for the more than 800 hard-working employees in the El Paso area construction industry."
