  • Develop and disseminate guidance and information at conferences, events, and/or through print and electronic media, and links from the OSHA and CMAA web sites.
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at conferences, local meetings, or other events.
  • Cross-train OSHA personnel and industry safety and health practitioners in construction management best practices and/or effective approaches.
  • Promote and encourage the CMAA members' participation in OSHA's cooperative programs.

Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:

  • Raise awareness through speeches and appearances by CMAA leaders of successful worksite programs and their commitment to workplace safety and health.
