OSHA in Wisconsin Dorm Project Partnership

The partners have agreed to develop effective safety and health training programs and procedures and also to identify common construction hazards.

OSHA has announced a safety partnership with Miron Construction Company Inc. and 23 contractors for a dorm renovation project at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The partners have agreed to develop effective safety and health training programs and procedures and also to identify common construction hazards such as falls, electrical, struck-by, caught-in, silica, asbestos, lead, heat stress, crane collapse, noise, and carbon monoxide. They'll encourage workers to participate in employer safety and health programs.

"We are pleased that all of the partners recognize that a comprehensive safety and health management system that incorporates management and labor input has a positive impact on employee safety in a high-hazard work environment," said OSHA Eau Claire Area Office Director Mark Hysell.

Participants in the partnership agreement include the Wisconsin Onsite Safety and Health Consultation Program, 23 contractors and subcontractors, five local trade unions, and an insurance risk consultant.
