OSHA, CSA Form Alliance to Improve Safety

November 30, 2004

The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Colorado Safety Association (CSA) have formed an alliance to improve worker safety and health in Colorado.

The alliance, signed on Nov. 17, will provide workers in Colorado with training opportunities, in both English and Spanish, in areas including contractor safety awareness, vehicle safety and first aid information such as CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators.

“Through this alliance, the partners have agreed to assist and promote the delivery of safety and health training throughout Colorado that will enhance employees’ ability to identify and reduce or prevent exposure to hazardous conditions in their workplace,” said Gregory Baxter, OSHA regional administrator in Denver.

OSHA health and safety alliances are part of Labor Secretary Elaine Chao’s ongoing efforts to improve the health and safety of workers through cooperative initiatives with companies and trade associations. Alliances provide an opportunity to participate in a cooperative relationship with OSHA for the purpose such as training, education, outreach and communications and promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health

Since 2002, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has created more than 230 alliances to prevent accidents and promote job health and safety.
