On November 6, OSHA announced its partnership with Holder Construction, an Illinois construction company. OSHA will be educating construction workers on hazards during the DuPont Data Center project in Elk Grove Village. The Illinois Department of Labor and several area unions are partnering on this deal.
Both employers and workers will be trained on construction hazards on the job such as fall, electrical, caught-in, and struck-by hazards. These are the leading causes of death and injury in the construction industry.
"Our focus is to forge a working relationship that will prevent serious workplace construction hazards and establish a foundation for the development of an effective safety and health program at the site," said Angie Loftus, OSHA's Chicago North Office director.
