The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Miron Construction Company Inc. have signed a strategic partnership to promote worker safety and health on the dormitory renovation project at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

The partnership will develop effective safety and health training programs and procedures; identify common construction hazards such as fallselectricalstruck-bycaught-insilicaasbestosleadheat stresscrane collapsenoise, and carbon monoxide; and encourage worker participation in employer safety and health programs.

“We are pleased that all of the partners recognize that a comprehensive safety and health management system that incorporates management and labor input has a positive impact on employee safety in a high-hazard work environment,” said OSHA Eau Claire Area Office Director Mark Hysell.

Also participating in the partnership agreement are the Wisconsin Onsite Safety and Health Consultation Program, 23 contractors and subcontractors, five local trade unions, and an insurance risk consultant.

Through its Strategic Partnership Program, OSHA works with employers, employees, professional and trade associations, labor organizations, and other interested stakeholders to establish specific goals, strategies, and performance measures to improve worker safety and health.
