OSHA Partners With State Agencies To Promote Safety
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has decided to renew its alliance with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the Council of Smaller Enterprises to promote worker safety throughout the state, according to Workers Compensation. OSHA and the state agencies will continue to collaborate to provide employers and workers with information, resources, proper training and access to assistance for the manufacturing, service and construction industries.
“The renewal of this alliance reflects a mutual recognition of the importance of workers’ safety and health,” said Howard Eberts, area director for OSHA in Cleveland. “We are working together to ensure all companies, especially smaller companies with fewer resources, are prepared to control hazards effectively that their workers may encounter. This alliance will continue to help develop effective safety programs, while opening the lines of communication among OSHA, employers and workers.”
It is great that OSHA and these other institutions are targeting smaller employers. Workers at all facilities, large and small, deserve to work under the same safe working conditions.
