OSHA renews alliance with Louisiana Associated General Contractors to
promote worker safety and health

Participants: The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Baton Rouge Area Office and the Louisiana Associated General Contractors

Alliance description: The alliance signed Oct. 29 will renew a commitment to material and knowledge access that aims to promote understanding of the workplace safety and health rights and responsibilities of workers and employers, including industrial and construction general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and service firms throughout Louisiana. Focus continues on reducing and preventing exposure to falls from elevated work surfaces, electrocution, heat illness, exposure to hazardous chemicals, struck-by and caught-in or -between hazards. Throughout the duration of the agreement, OSHA will provide safety and health information in English and Spanish to construction and general industry workers.

Duration: Three-year agreement

Quote: "Over the past few years an industrial resurgence has been underway in south Louisiana, and that really emphasizes the importance of working together to make sure workers, who are contributing to the industrial growth, remain safe and healthy in the workplace so they can return home to their families," said Dorinda Folse, OSHA's area director in Baton Rouge. "That's what this alliance is about ⿿ a continuing commitment to worker safety and health."

Information: Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with businesses, trade associations, unions, consulates, professional organizations, faith and community-based organizations, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. For information about forming an alliance or partnership, contact OSHA's Baton Rouge Area Office at 225-298-5458.
