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."

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
