OSHA Partners with Holder Construction Group to Protect Construction Workers on Oasis Data Center Project

The partnership aims to protect and educate those working on the Omaha, Nebraska, Project

Holder Construction Group LLC and OSHA have developed a strategic partnership to protect and educate workers on construction hazards during the building of the Oasis Data Center Project in Omaha, according to a news release.

The relationship will focus on training employers and workers about hazards construction workers face daily on the job, including fall, electrical, caught-in and struck-by hazards. These hazards are the leading cause of injuries and fatalities in the construction industry.

“Our focus is to forge a working relationship to prevent serious workplace construction hazards and establish a foundation for the development of an effective safety and health program at the site,” said Bonita Winingham, OSHA’s area director in Omaha.

Techniques such as increased training, implementation of best work practices, and creation of site-specific written safety and health programs will be used to meet goals.

The Oasis project is an 183,000-square-foot data center, which includes a chiller plant, administrative areas and supporting mechanical, electrical and plumbing rooms.
