OSHA and Turner Construction Forge Partnership to Train Construction Workers

The partnership will focus on workers on the CH2 Data Center project in Northlake, Illinois

OSHA and Turner Construction Company have announced a partnership to protect workers on the CH2 Data Center project in Northlake, Illinois, according to a report.  The partnership includes trade unions and 15 subcontractors, with a combined workforce of more than 500 employees.

The partnership will focus on reducing injury and illness on the construction site, where the $275 million data center is expected to be complete in 2018. More specifically, training will focus on falls, struck-by, caught-in/between and electrocution hazards.

All employers will have to implement written safety and health programs daily, and inspection job sites with workers on a weekly basis.

"Workplace safety is achieved when labor, management and employees work together to recognize hazards and train workers in safety protocols and procedures," said Angeline Loftus, OSHA's area director for its Chicago North Office in Des Plaines. "OSHA has found partnerships like this set a standard for all employers working on the project that safety will not be compromised."
