Itasca, IL (WorkersCompensation.com) - The National Safety Council and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Nov. 18 renewed their commitment to continue working together to promote workplace health and safety. Lorraine M. Martin, NSC president and CEO, and Loren Sweatt, deputy assistant secretary of labor for OSHA, signed an Alliance Program Ambassador relationship. The two organizations have been in an Alliance since 2003.
Through this renewed relationship, OSHA and NSC agree to share information, guidance and access to training resources that address occupational hazards, and promote understanding of the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
“For more than 45 years, NSC has maintained a strong partnership with OSHA,” said Martin. “With a shared mission to protect workers, we can make the greatest impact in reducing workplace injuries and deaths. These combined efforts will help our nation's workers live their fullest lives.”
