The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a safety partnership with the Burlington-based construction company Erland Construction. The goal of the partnership is to maximize worker safety and health at the Covidien West Street construction project in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
According to Brenda Gordon, OSHA’s South Boston Area Office director, “this partnership is designed to encourage, recognize and assist contractors who want to minimize hazards and enhance their safety and health performance.”
As part of the agreement, Erland will develop a project-specific safety and health plan. A qualified safety and health representative will implement and supervise the project.
Since 1998, over 1.4 million employees and almost 28,000 employers have participated in strategic partnerships with OSHA.
