OLD SAYBROOK, CT — The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has joined with the Independent Electrical Contractors Inc. (IEC) to form an alliance to promote safe and healthful working conditions in that industry, according to the latest issue of the OSHA Compliance Advisor.

In announcing the agreement, OSHA administrator John Henshaw noted that, “IEC recognizes the value of collaborative relationships that strengthen the means to protect America’s workers, and we’re committed to helping them help their members.”

OSHA and IEC have developed a way of providing IEC members with information and guidance to help them protect their employees, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to: falls, rear-end auto collisions, and material-handling hazards. The alliance also calls for increasing worker access to safety and health information and training resources.
