OSHA Establishes Partnership to Protect Workers During Construction of Atlanta Airport Terminal
Signing Ceremony Scheduled for May 26 in College Park

ATLANTA - The U.S. Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is forging a partnership with Holder-Manhattan-Moody-Hunt Joint Venture and Georgia Tech Consultative Services to protect workers during the construction of the Maynard Holbrook Jackson International Terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

"This partnership represents a commitment by all parties to provide workers with a safe and healthy work environment during this construction project at the nation's busiest airport," said Andre Richards, OSHA's Atlanta-West area director.

Goals for the partnership are to reduce and eliminate hazards that lead to fatalities, injuries and illnesses; assure that employers have effective safety and health programs; and provide employees effective safety and health training for English and non-English speaking employees.
