OSHA Renews Alliance with Lake County Contractors Association


CHICAGO -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Lake County Contractors Association (LCCA), Lake County, Ill., are extending their alliance for another two years to continue focusing on safety and health issues in the construction industry.

"The collective expertise of this association and OSHA can make a significant impact on the safety and health of construction workers," said Diane Turek, OSHA area director in Des Plaines, Ill. "This alliance gives us the tools to encourage employers and workers to commit to safe work practices and achieve positive gains toward reducing injuries, illnesses and fatalities."

OSHA and LCCA will continue to work together to encourage employers to increase employee access to safety and health information and training resources and to incorporate safety and health issues into the construction process. In addition, OSHA and LCCA are distributing information through print and electronic media, including using their Web sites.

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 process improvement in workplace safety and health.
