OSHA and CI will recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. Through this Alliance, the organizations will encourage employers in the construction industry to increase employee access to safety and health information and training resources and to incorporate safety and health issues into the construction/constructability process. The goals of the Alliance include:

Training and education
  • 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 Abbott's Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or Abbott's national and local meetings and other events such as health care industry conferences.
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 CI's Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.
  • Speak, exhibit, and/or appear at conferences, local meetings, or other events such as annual and regional meetings of the Construction Institute, and the American Society of Civil Engineers.
  • Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding CI's best practices or effective approaches and publicize results through outreach by CI and through OSHA- or CI-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 and roundtable discussions on construction safety issues such as designing for construction safety to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
