OSHA renews alliance to protect roadway construction workers

OSHA has renewed an alliance with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and Roadway Work Zone Safety and Health Partners to protect workers in roadway construction work zones from injuries, illnesses and fatalities. The renewed alliance, which will continue for five years, promotes a culture of safety in the roadway construction industry, especially among non- and limited-English speaking workers. Members collaborate to reduce workplace incidents, especially preventing worker exposures to run-over and back-over hazards, excessive noise, sprains and strains, and illnesses related to silica exposure.
