OSHA renews alliance with SMACNA
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association recently renewed an alliance to provide information, guidance, and access to training resources that help protect employee health and safety.
"We appreciate SMACNA 's contributions to our motor vehicle safety and health topics page and other materials," said OSHA administrator Ed Foulke, Jr. "We are pleased to continue working with them to further protect employee health and safety."
Established more than two years ago, the alliance will continue to focus on motor vehicle safety, fall protection and personal protective equipment. It includes an emphasis on cuts and eye injuries, and reducing and preventing exposure to amputation and welding hazards.
"We are enthusiastic about our ongoing alliance with OSHA because it ensures continuity and structure for the development of new safety information and tools to make American workplaces safer,” said Richard J. Cramer, Sr., president of SMACNA.
