OSHA, Gilbane Building Company Sign Partnership Agreement
OSHA and Providence-based Gilbane Building Company signed a partnership agreement to protect 250 workers during the renovation of the Connecticut State Office Building and parking garage in Hartford.
Gilbane has a Connecticut office in Glastonbury.
The partnership agreement will encourage involvement of general contractors and subcontractors to enhance safety and health practices.
The Strategic Partnership Program provides opportunities for OSHA to partner with employers, workers, professional or trade associations, labor organizations, and other interested stakeholders to create safe and healthful work environments.
New Alliance Agreements in Connecticut
Other recent OSHA collaboration with Connecticut employers includes the following agreements signed under the agency’s Alliance Program:
- The Griffin Hospital Occupational Medicine Center renewed a two-year agreement to provide guidance and training resources on topics such as recordkeeping, hearing conservation, lockout/tagout, machine guarding, and bloodborne pathogens to businesses in the Greater Naugatuck Valley area of Connecticut.
- The Yale Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program signed a two-year agreement to provide medical fellows and residents with guidance and training on acute and chronic occupational health hazards and chemical exposures, and understanding worker protections under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
The OSHA Alliance Program fosters 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, and give them better access to workplace safety and health tools and information.
In February 2017, CBIA and OSHA signed a two-year agreement to provide CBIA members and others with occupational safety information, guidance, and training. For more information, contact CBIA’s Phillip Montgomery (860.244.1982).
