OSHA forms partnership to protect workers on US Coast Guard headquarters construction project in Washington

OSHA has announced a partnership with Clark Construction Group LLC to promote workplace safety and health, and provide guidance and training for workers involved in the construction of the U.S. Coast Guard headquarters building in southeast D.C.

“This partnership affirms OSHA’s commitment to ensuring the safety of workers involved in this project,” said Michael Walterschied, director of the agency’s Baltimore Area Office, who attended a ceremony today at the construction site. “We welcome the opportunity to join with Clark Construction Group in this cooperative effort to prevent injuries and fatalities.”

The partnership aims to reduce the number of at-risk conditions and behaviors that could result in worker fatalities, injuries or illnesses, especially those relating to falls, struck-by, caught-in and electrical accidents.

Through the Strategic Partnership Program, OSHA partners with employers, workers, professional and trade associations, labor organizations and other interested stakeholders to establish specific goals, strategies and performance measures to improve worker safety and health.
