Congratulations to McCarthy Building Co. on signing an Occupational Safety and Health Administration Strategic Partnership on Dec. 14, 2016. The signing ceremony was officiated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Mark Briggs, OSHA area director, Houston South Office; Joann Figueroa, OSHA area director, Houston North Office; and Jim Shelton, compliance assistance specialist, OSHA Houston North Area Office.

The official agreement between AGC Houston and OSHA was signed on September 4, 2014 to formalize the "cooperative effort between these entities committed to encouraging construction companies to voluntarily improve their safety and health performance, providing methods to assist them in their efforts, and recognizing companies with exemplary safety and health programs." Stated Figueroa, "It’s an invaluable cooperative relationship between OSHA and the partners. We appreciate being part of the AGC Houston Safety Committee and commend McCarthy Building Company for qualifying for this partnership."

"This has been a long-standing partnership between the AGC and OSHA. There are not too many partnerships left in OSHA (in the United States) because the organization is moving more towards alliances. Having a relationship with OSHA and doing the right thing ... is important. We all benefit from sharing best practices information and solutions," Briggs added.
