Through the OSHA and CSDA Alliance, the organizations will work together to provide the association's members and other sawing and drilling operators with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety. OSHA and CSDA will focus on addressing workplace issues such as electrical safety, hearing protection, and ladder and scaffold safety. The Alliance's goals include:
Outreach and communication
- Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and the CSDA's Web sites) to employers and employees in the construction industry.
- Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding CSDA's best practices or effective approaches and publicize results through outreach by CSDA and through OSHA- or CSDA-developed materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
- Convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on construction-related issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
