OSHA And PA Chamber Renew Alliance To Protect Workers

Washington, DC (WorkersCompensation.com) - The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently announced it has renewed an alliance with the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry to continue providing PA Chamber members and their employees with information, guidance, and access to workplace safety and health training resources.

“Renewing our alliance with the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry affords us the opportunity to further our efforts to reduce and prevent worker exposure to hazards predominantly associated with general industry,” said Kevin Kilp, director of OSHA's Harrisburg Area Office.  “We look forward to continuing our positive impact on workers and safety and health professionals.”

Since the alliance's inception in March 2004, OSHA and the PA Chamber have jointly provided safety and health presentations to approximately 2,500 workers in general industry and safety and health professionals in the Harrisburg area. Presentations will be expanded throughout Pennsylvania under this new agreement. 

Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with unions, consulates, trade and professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, businesses and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. The purpose of each alliance is to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, and educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities. Alliance Program participants do not receive exemptions from OSHA programmed inspections.
