OSHA and ASSE Renew Worker Safety and Health Alliance
The new agreement is for five years
OSHA and ASSE have announced a renewed alliance that will address construction safety, temporary workers and hazards within general industries, according to a report.
“Since our alliance began more than a decade ago, the ASSE has been a champion partner of the agency, communicating OSHA information to its members and supporting our national initiatives like the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. “We look forward to building on this collaboration and will continue to work closely to help ensure the safety and health of all workers, including those who are most vulnerable.”
The two organizations will work to provide members and others with guidance and training resources on protecting worker safety and health, and understanding workers’ rights and employers’ responsibilities.
