MIOSHA Partners with Subcontractors Group

"We're pleased to sign this alliance that brings together our organizations to expand education, outreach, and information sharing throughout the state," said MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman. "We particularly look forward to engaging smaller contractors to assist them in developing an appropriate safety and health program for their job sites."

MIOSHA, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration, announced it has signed an alliance agreement to work with the American Subcontractors Association of Michigan, known as ASAM.

"We're pleased to sign this alliance that brings together our organizations to expand education, outreach, and information sharing throughout the state," said MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman. "We particularly look forward to engaging smaller contractors to assist them in developing an appropriate safety and health program for their job sites."

They have agreed that the team will meet at least three times annually to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the three-year alliance, which was signed by MIOSHA and ASAM officials -- those included President Chris Weaver, Safety Committee Chair Nate Steffen, and Education Chair Brian Potter. The signing took place at the Mercy Health Campus Consolidation project in Muskegon, Mich., where safety case studies will be developed and publicized by the partners.

"The ASAM Safety Committee is grateful for MIOSHA's willingness to form an alliance to help ASAM better serve its membership, their employees, and the general contracting/construction management community," Potter said.

MIOSHA reported that its alliances are open to all groups, including trade or professional associations, businesses, labor organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies.
