OSHA Renews Partnership Agreement of
Model Workplace Safety Program

DALLAS -- In an effort to continue providing a higher level of employee safety and health training, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Austin area office and the San Antonio Chapter of the Associated General Contractors of America (AGCA) have renewed its partnership.

Under the Safety and Health Agreement Regarding Enforcement (SHARE) program, contractors and OSHA enter into an extended voluntary, cooperative relationship for three more years to assist in eliminating serious hazards and achieve a high level of worker safety and health.

"SHARE comes at an important time," said Paul L. Brantley, OSHA Austin area director. "The San Antonio area is experiencing a construction boom, and it is crucial that we take far reaching steps toward assuring safety and health in the workplace."

The cornerstone of the partnership is the voluntary development and implementation of effective workplace safety and health programs that provide for management leadership and employee involvement. The employer must provide a qualified safety representative to self-inspect the participating job sites and provide the Austin area office with its findings. Verification visits and enforcement inspections will be provided by OSHA

Quarterly meetings will be held for evaluation and feedback as to the success of the SHARE program.

For more information on the SHARE program, or to report workplace safety and health mattes, contact the OSHA Austin are office at (512) 916-5783, ext. 225.
