On September 20, 2007, OSHA and National Construction
Safety Executives (NCSE) formed an Alliance to provide the association's members
and others in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access
to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety
for those who are new to the construction industry, particularly focusing on
reducing and preventing exposure to construction site workplace hazards such as
falls, electrical, struck-by and caught in-between.
Based on discussions regarding the future of the Alliance, OSHA and NCSE agreed
to conclude the Alliance as of September 20, 2009, and to begin planning a new
Alliance that includes new training initiatives and sharing best practices with
OSHA staff. A number of successes resulted from the agreement including:
- NCSE representatives were active participants on
the OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable and its Design for Safety
Workgroup and Fall Protection Workgroup.
- NCSE, and more than 50 other Alliance Program participants and OSHA, helped
support the 2009 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week,
"Safety Means Always Coming Home.," May 3-9, 2009. Sponsored annually by the
American Society of Safety Engineers, an Alliance Program participant, and the
Canadian Society of Safety Engineering, the Week focuses on the importance of
preventing injuries and illnesses in the workplace.
