The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Tampa Area Office and the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., Florida Gulf Coast Chapter (ABC, Florida Gulf Coast Chapter) continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and the ABC, Florida Gulf Coast Chapter hereby renew the Alliance signed June 12, 2008, and renewed February 25, 2011, with a continued emphasis on reducing and preventing exposure to falls, trenching and excavation, scaffold, confined space, struck-by, chemical and electrical hazards, as well as other prevalent safety and health hazards in the construction industry. Specifically, OSHA and the ABC, Florida Gulf Coast are committed to providing the ABC, Florida Gulf Coast members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to place emphasis on effectively communicating these issues to hard-to-reach groups, such as non-English speaking and youth workers. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the ABC, Florida Gulf Coast Chapter recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
