OSHA Partnership to Protect Workers on Oregon Clean Energy Center Project

A partnership between Black & Veatch Construction Inc. and OSHA will protect workers for the Oregon Clean Energy Center in Oregon, Ohio.

After reaching a partnership with OSHA, all contractors and subcontractors will be committed to providing a safe and healthful work environment for employees working on the Oregon Clean Energy Center project in Oregon, Ohio.

The project will cost $860 million and is expected to create 500 construction jobs. The signed partnership between OSHA and Black & Veatch Construction will focus on establishing proactive measures for common hazards found at construction sites, according to a news release. This includes an emphasis on PPE, job site orientations, safety meetings and a requirement for all contractors to provide copies of their written safety and health programs.

"We're excited about this new partnership, because we know efforts like these improve workplace safety by fostering teamwork and prevention among all contractors on the job site," said Kim Nelson, OSHA's area director in Toledo. "OSHA and Black & Veatch want to ensure all companies working on this project put worker safety first."
