Local OSHA office to launch construction worker safety hazard workshops for employers

By ,

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched a regional campaign to raise awareness for employers about the top four worker safety hazards in the construction industry.

The campaign aims to educate employers on how to recognize, evaluate and control hazards from electricity, falling, getting struck or getting caught between objects.

OSHA’s Allentown area office at 3477 Corporate Parkway, Upper Saucon Township, is planning to hold discussions for employers in Lehigh, Northampton, Bucks and Montgomery counties, but has not yet scheduled them, according to Leni Fortson, a spokeswoman for OSHA’s regional office in Philadelphia.

“This campaign is designed to promote and encourage a safe workplace so that employers and employees finish each day without injury,” said Richard Mendelsohn, regional administrator for the OSHA Philadelphia-area office.

The states in the regional campaign are Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.
