    1. The OSHA/TEJATC Alliance provided an opportunity to increase the safety and health knowledge of IBEW members and OSHA staff in Northwest Ohio. OSHA personnel provide current occupational safety and health information to instructors and IBEW journeymen and apprentices utilizing the training services at the TEJATC. OSHA staff in turn gets instruction on electrical issues, wind tower safety, fall protection, electrical testing equipment and solar cell installation and maintenance.
