  4. Evaluations

    This Alliance is very proactive in training their workers/members on safety and health. We meet monthly and we 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. During these meetings there is an open question and answer session with the attending members.
