OSHA and National Demolition Association (NDA) Alliance
Close-Out Report

On May 26, 2005, OSHA and the National Demolition Association (NDA) formed an Alliance to provide NDA's members and others in the demolition industry, including non-English or limited English speaking employees, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, by addressing issues such as emergency preparedness and response and fall protection.

Because NDA has decided to focus on other projects and priorities, OSHA and NDA agreed to conclude the Alliance as of May 26, 2007. Through OSHA and NDA’S working together to meet the agreements goals, a number of successes resulted from the Alliance, including:
  • Representatives from the association worked with OSHA to develop the OSHA Training Institute 3500 Demolition Training Course agenda and assisted in teaching the course to OSHA federal and State Plan State representatives.

  • OSHA and NDA worked together to develop the Silica and Skid Steer Safety Tips Sheet for Employers and Employees.

  • A representative from the association served on OSHA’s Demolition Safety and Health Topics page’s editorial board.

  • On April 3, 2007, Paula White, Director, Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs (DCSP), USDOL-OSHA, gave two presentations on OSHA’s cooperative programs during the workshop “Contractor Rights and Responsibilities during an OSHA Compliance Inspection” at the 34th NDA Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  • On March 29, 2006, Paula White, Director, DCSP, USDOL-OSHA, gave a presentation on OSHA's compliance assistance resources for Hispanic employers and employees at the 33rd NDA Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  • On October 27, 2005, Lee Anne Jillings, Director, Office of Outreach Services and Alliances, USDOL-OSHA, gave a presentation on the Alliance Program and the activities of the OSHA and NDA Alliance at the 11th Annual NDA Safety Summit in Baltimore, Maryland.

  • NDA had a representative on the OSHA Alliance Program’s Construction Roundtable Fall Protection Workgroup.
