Through the Alliance, OSHA and NLBMDA will work together and with other interested parties to increase overall safety awareness in the lumber and building materials industry while specifically addressing recordkeeping issues and reducing or preventing forklift accidents and lifting strains. The Alliance will help raise awareness of OSHA's recordkeeping requirements by developing and providing information and training resources for the lumber and building material industry. The Alliance's goals include:

Training and education
  • Develop, while addressing language and literacy issues, training, education programs, and "tool box talks" on recordkeeping, forklifts, and safe lifting for the lumber and building material industry.
Outreach and communication
  • Develop electronic assistance tools that address recordkeeping issues as well as safety and health hazards including reducing and preventing forklift accidents and lifting strains.
  • Encourage NLBMDA chapters to build relationships with OSHA's Regional and Area Offices.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Encourage NLBMDA's members to act as industry liaisons and resources for OSHA's cooperative programs and Compliance Assistance Specialists.
