TAXAS CHAPTER OF ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS & OSHA AFFIRM ALLIANACE
A three year alliance in Amarillo, Texas has been renewed by the Panhandle of Texas Chapter of the Associated General Contractors alongside the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor. The aim of this pact is to further educate and bring awareness regarding construction hazards to both employers and employees.
Specifically the concordat targets the reduction and prevention of electrocution, falls, “struck-by” incidents, and “caught-in-between” scenarios. Increased training has been deemed the most effective technique in improving safety. In 2020, 12,000 workers engaged in safety training composed of workshops and seminars which were conducted by the Panhandle of Texas Chapter-AGC (ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS.)
OSHA Area Director, Elizabeth Linda Routh, has stated that both OSHA and the Panhandle of Texas Chapter-AGC are efficiently operating to intercept the manifestation of injuries among the realm of construction. Routh believes the renewal of the alliance will continue to succeed in its goal of ensuring employee safety.
The OSHA Alliance Program works with other groups who are also dedicated to worker welfare. Such groups allow OSHA to obtain the attention of their targeted audience.
Employers are required to manage safe and healthy workplaces for their employees as stated under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. Time is hoping to enforce safety standards and regulations, increase training, and provide education and support.
