OSHA Renews Alliance to Protect Workers from Scaffold Hazards

OSHA and the Scaffold and Access Industry Association (SAIA) renewed their alliance, Wednesday, to provide information and training to protect the safety and health of workers who use scaffolds and lift equipment. Through the alliance, which will remain in effect for five years, OSHA and SAIA will focus on reducing and preventing worker injuries and deaths from fall and caught-in-between risks; address potential hazards associated with mast climbing scaffolds, suspended scaffolds, and aerial lift equipment; and emphasize the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
