OSHA and NAWIC are committed to providing NAWIC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). The goals of the Alliance include:

Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives
  • To share information on OSHA's National Emphasis Programs, Regulatory Agenda, and opportunities to participate in the rulemaking process.
  • To share information on occupational safety and health laws, standards, and guidance resources, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.
  • To convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on construction to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
Outreach and Communication
  • To share information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards (e.g., via print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA and NAWIC websites) with employers and workers in the construction industry.
  • To speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA or NAWIC conferences, local meetings, or other events.
  • To encourage NAWIC chapters to build relationships with federal OSHA Regional and Area Offices, as well as State Plans and On-Site Consultation Projects, as appropriate, to address construction health and safety issues.
