OSHA Partners with Pennsylvania Companies to Build New Medical Facility

A Strategic Partnership Program is created to ensure workers’ safety throughout the construction process.

A partnership was established to promote workplace safety at the Penn State Health Lancaster Medical Center during construction between OSHA, Barton Malow and Alexander Building Construction Co.

The goal is to provide training for employers and employees on falls and fall protection, struck-by and electrocution hazards, caught-in or in between, scaffolding, crane operation, excavation and safety and hazard recognition.

According to a press release, the medical center is 41,000 square feet. It is an acute care hospital with an emergency department, specialty inpatient services and beds, an imaging lab, medical and surgical abilities and an attached medical office.

Through the Strategic Partnership Program, OSHA works with many employers, employees and organizations to ensure worker safety and health.

Under the OSHA Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing a safe workplace. OSHA’s role is to make sure the appropriate conditions are enforced for workers.
