Des Moines Area Community College Business Resources Joins OSHA
to Form Safety and Health Alliance

DES MOINES, Ia. - Fostering workplace safety and health is the goal of a new alliance between the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) Business Resources.

OSHA Health and Safety alliances are part of U.S. Labor Secretary Elaine L. Chao's ongoing efforts to improve the health and safety of workers. OSHA alliances provide an opportunity to participate in a cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training and education, outreach and communication, and promoting a national dialogue on workplace safety and health.

This alliance will provide expertise to develop training and education programs for students from businesses, governmental agencies and non-profit organizations addressing safety and health related topics such as electrical safety, hazardous materials and working in confined-spaces, as well as general OSHA compliance topics. Information will also be provided about recognizing and preventing workplace hazards and developing ways to communicate safety information to employers and workers through the media, electronic assistance tools, and Web sites operated by OSHA and by DMACC Business Resources.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration have created more than 240 alliances with organizations committed to fostering safety and health in the workplace.

Employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. OSHA's role is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
