OSHA and NSC Renew Alliance

This alliance is to address worker exposure to falls, emergency response and other safety issues

OSHA and NSC renewed their alliance to work together to protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, according to a news release from OSHA.

Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of occupational safety and health, announced the renewal during the NSC Congress & Expo in San Diego, Calif. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the National Safety Council to educate and train employers on preventing workplace hazards,” Michaels said. “Through our continued work with the NSC, we are working with employers to create a culture of safety to better prevent workplace injuries and illnesses.”

The agreement lasts five years, and during that time the alliance will use data on injuries and illnesses, workers’ compensation experience and exposure hazards in general industry and construction to help identify new areas of emphasis. The alliance will support the NSC’s “Journey to Safety Excellence” campaign, which aims to educate employers on how investing in worker safety and health protections can significantly improve their productivity and profitability.

The alliance will also include the development of outreach materials on preventing falls, motor vehicle safety, emergency response and the importance of establishing an injury and illness prevention program. The alliance will also develop a case study on preventing falls from heights in construction, with a focus on the causes of fall protection failures and what companies can do to assure an effective fall prevention program.
