OSHA and Pennsylvania Alliance for Workplace Safety

Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor, and OSHA formed an alliance to promote safety information and training to workplaces.

The OSHA Alliance Program has been fostering collaborative relationships between groups committed to the safety of workers for many years now. Recently, the program oversaw an alliance among three parties: The U.S. Department of Labor’s OSHA, the Pennsylvania OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

The goal of the alliance is to provide workers with the means to stay safe and healthy through information, guidance, and training resources. The new alliance between the parties specifically involves OSHA’s Pennsylvania area offices in Allentown, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia. The partnership will focus on promoting safety and health, particularly emphasizing an understanding of employees’ rights and employers’ responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

The OSH Act of 1970 is in place to employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions by setting and enforcing standards. For more information, visit https://www.osha.gov.
