The purpose of the Alliance is to provide ABC-AL members and others in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect workers' health and safety, by reducing and preventing exposure to hazards such as falls, cave-ins, struck-by and silica by providing employers and workers with assistance and knowledge regarding OSHA requirements and developing an effective safety and health management system. The Alliance allows for an OSHA library at the ABC facility for the use of members.
