  5. Evaluations

    This Alliance is very proactive in training their workers/members on safety and health. We meet monthly and I present to all attending members a 30 minute OSHA briefing on Fatalities, injuries and other events that have occurred in our area, region or nation monthly. The member companies have experienced safety managers and officers at the construction sites who attend the monthly briefings with OSHA.

    Alliance will be renewed.

  6. Upcoming Milestones

    • OSHA 10 hour classes are scheduled to occur in March, May, June and August of 2017.
    • Fall Stand Down Events are scheduled to occur at selected construction sites in May 2017.
