Through the Alliance, OSHA and NAWIC will work together to provide NAWIC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to ergonomic hazards, sanitation hazards, and issues related to personal protective equipment selection in the industry, with the focus on a subset of construction workers with unique needs.

Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives
  • To convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on construction industry hazards and issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
Training and Education
  • To develop effective training and education programs for women in the construction industry regarding ergonomics and sanitation hazards and the selection of PPE, and to communicate such information to constituent employers and workers.
Outreach and Communication
  • To develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to develop ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA's and the NAWIC's Web sites) to employers and workers in the industry.
  • To speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or NAWIC's conferences, local meetings, or other events.
