NEW YORK — The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has renewed its alliance with the Steel Erectors’ Association of Metropolitan Philadelphia and Ironworkers’ Union Local 401.

The alliance is intended to promote workplace safety and provide guidance and training for steel erection workers, OSHA said.

"This alliance renewal reaffirms our commitment to ensure that steel erection industry workers across the greater Philadelphia area have a safe and healthy workplace," Domenick Salvatore, director of OSHA’s Philadelphia-area office, said in a statement. "We will continue identifying methods to prevent and reduce hazards associated with the steel industry, particularly fall and struck-by hazards."

The alliance, which provides dialogue between workers, contractors and OSHA, was started in 2008, Ironworkers’ Union Local 401 member Frank Marsh told AMM. "The alliance helps (our contractors) adhere to the regulations," he said. "Instead of being an adversarial relationship, now it’s an alliance."
