The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Dallas Regional Office and The Hispanic Contractors Association de Tejas (HCAT) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and HCAT hereby form an Alliance to provide HCAT members and other Hispanic workers in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them (1) protect the health and safety of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to fall, electrical, struck-by, and caught in-between (“focus‑four”) hazards and addressing immigrant worker issues; and (2) understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). In developing this Alliance, OSHA and HCAT recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party’s products or services.
