OSHA Renews Alliance with Altec Industries Inc.

The alliance will focus on the safe operation, use, and maintenance of equipment such as cranes, chippers, digger derricks, and aerial lifts.

OSHA and Altec Industries Inc. have announced the renewal of their alliance designed to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and fatalities in the utility, telecommunications, and construction industries. According to an OSHA news release, the alliance will focus on the safe operation, use, and maintenance of equipment used in these industries, including cranes, chippers, digger derricks, and aerial devices.

"Workers in the telecommunication, utility, and construction industries face serious, often life-threatening hazards every day," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels. "Through our renewed alliance with Altec Industries, we will continue to provide training to vulnerable workers and encourage employers to commit to safer work practices."

The alliance will provide safety training in mobile cranes, tree care and insulated aerial devices, digger derricks, wood chippers, and construction and general industry standards. The alliance also will update guidance and training materials on fall protection, electric shock, and aerial lift tip-overs. Additionally, the alliance will work to provide workers, including those with limited English proficiency, with resources that will help them understand their rights and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
