Back to National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA)
On December 6, 2004, OSHA and the National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) formed an Alliance to provide NUCA's members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources to protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to underground utility construction hazards associated with trenching and excavation, tunneling, and confined space entry. Through the Alliance, OSHA and NUCA worked together to develop an OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach Training Program focusing on trenching and excavation and shared information during speaking opportunities and distributing compliance assistance tools.
