Health and Safety Updates


OSHA Alliance Updates

The U. S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Delmarva Safety Association (DSA) joined together to form an Alliance, originally signed into agreement on March 7, 2006.

 

OSHA and Delmarva Safety Association recognize the value of a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces, and are committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health, especially by providing DSA members and others with information, guidance and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers.  Through the Alliance, the organizations will also focus on reducing workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths among the Spanish speaking workforce especially, and offer ways to work through the language and cultural challenges that exist.  Through this Alliance, OSHA and DSA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

 

Teams made up of representatives from each organization work to share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance.

 

If you would like to be a part of the DSA team to help identify and provide solutions to these types of workplace issues and challenges, please contact us!
