OSHA and the Shipbuilding Group recently signed an alliance focused on preventing worker exposure to electrical, ergonomic, struck-by and slip, trip and fall hazards in shipyards. The Shipbuilding Group is comprised of the National Shipbuilding Research Program and the Shipbuilders Council of America. During the two year agreement, OSHA and the Shipbuilding Group will develop training and identify best practices that promote safety and health in shipbuilding and repair. The alliance will also support OSHA’s prevention of falls campaign, including the delivery of safety stand-down events at shipyards.
