Outreach and communication:

  • Identify contacts within Belfor USA that can provide OSHA with information regarding mold removal.
  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on mold removal and motor vehicle safety that are addressed and developed through the Alliance.

Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:

  • Participate in forums, roundtable discussions and conferences on mold removal and motor vehicle safety, in the construction and restoration industries, to help forge innovative solutions to raising safety awareness in the workplace.
