OSHA Forms Alliance to Promote Workplace Safety in Pennsylvania

September 17, 2019 OSHA Forms Alliance to Promote Workplace Safety in Pennsylvania

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has signed a two-year alliance with the Pennsylvania OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation to provide employers and employees with information, guidance and access to training resources to promote safe and healthful workplaces.

The new alliance between OSHA’s Pennsylvania-area offices in Allentown, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and the two partners, will focus on promoting safety and health training, workplace safety and an understanding of employees’ rights and employers’ responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

The OSHA Alliance Program is intended to foster collaborative relationships with groups committed to worker safety and health. Alliance partners help OSHA reach targeted audiences, such as employers and workers in high-hazard industries, giving them better access to workplace safety and health tools and information.
