Through the Alliance, OSHA and the Washington Division of URS Corporation will focus on using their collective expertise to help advance a culture of accident prevention while sharing information, guidance, best practices, access to training resources and technical knowledge that will help protect employees' safety and health. In particular, the Alliance will address, but is not limited to, the areas of cranes and rigging, hearing protection and ergonomics within the engineering and construction industry. The Alliance's goals include:

Training and Education
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop training and education programs on specific construction industry safety and health issues and provide expertise in communicating such information to employers and employees in the industry.
Outreach and Communication
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and the Washington Division of URS Corporation's Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.
  • Promote and encourage the Washington Division of URS Corporation to participate in OSHA's cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, the Voluntary Protection Programs, On-site Consultation and its Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on engineering and construction industry issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
