OSHA and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) have renewed an ongoing alliance to continue promoting safe and healthful working conditions for female construction workers. The five-year alliance will focus on hazards of particular concern to women in the construction industry, including personal protective equipment selection, sanitation and workplace intimidation and violence.
Alliance participants will share with employers and workers information on recognizing and preventing workplace hazards in construction, as well as information on OSHA campaigns, including the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction; Heat Illness Prevention; and the Safe + Sound Campaign for Safety and Health Programs.
NAWIC provides educational and professional development opportunities to more than 4,000 women working in construction.
The OSHA Alliance Program fosters collaborative relationships with groups committed to worker safety and health.
