U.S. Department of Labor & OSHA collaborate with Dellbrook/JKS to promote workplace safety in Massachusetts.
CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS –
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States of America and Dellbrook/JKS Inc., a regional construction management company, have formed a partnership to promote worker safety and health on a construction project near Cambridge’s Fresh Pond Reservation.
OSHA and Dellbrook/JKS Inc. are collaborating to prevent worker injuries and hazards during the construction of a multifamily residential housing project.
The partnership will emphasize the proper use of personal protective equipment; the prevention of heat illness; the protection and prevention of fires; and the prevention of falls and exposure to hazards caused by being struck by and caught in/between objects, electricity, hand and power tools, silica, lead, and noise.
Additionally, the partners will encourage contractors to develop and implement safety and health programs for employees, employers, and supervisors, as well as provide related training.
OSHA’s Strategic Partnership Program collaborates with employers, employees, professional and trade associations, labor organizations, and other interested parties to develop specific goals, strategies, and performance measures for worker safety and health.
