May 7-11, 2018
OSHA has announced the dates for next year's Safety Stand Down. This is a voluntary event that encourages employers to have a conversation with their workers about fall hazards and prevention. The week-long event is sponsored by OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and CPWR (The Center for Construction Research and Training).

P.J. Dick Corp., a Philadelphia Builders Chapter and MBA of Western Pennsylvania member, has aligned with OSHA to promote workplace safety and educate workers on construction hazards during construction of a new office building in Erie.

The project, which will build a seven-floor, 340,000-sq-ft office building on French Street, will be occupied by Erie Insurance. It is expected to be completed by spring 2020.

"Our focus is to establish a foundation for the development of an effective safety and health program at the site," said Brendan Claybaugh, OSHA area director, in Erie.

The partnership seeks to reduce annual injury and illness rates, control hazards by implementing an effective safety and health management system for the project’s contractors, conduct self-inspections, and train contractors on hazard identification techniques, and foster a working relationship with OSHA. It also will support safety and health campaigns and other initiatives.

Through its Strategic Partnership Program (SPP), 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. Visit the OSHA site for more information on the SPP.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education, and assistance.
