The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Chippewa Valley Technical College have renewed alliance to guide and train employers and workers in the Chippewa Valley Technical College Services area.
The alliance will allow OSHA and CVTC to develop effective training programs for local industry, provide safety seminars and talks, encourage worker participation in employer safety and health programs, and share information on occupational safety and health laws.
First signed on October 4, 2006, the alliance will promote work safety and health within the general industry, construction and agricultural industries. Through the alliance, OSHA and CVTC will work together to educate workers and employers on OSHA’s rulemakings, enforcement initiatives, and safety campaigns, including an understanding of workers’ rights and employer responsibilities.
“By collaborating with the Chippewa Valley Technical College, we at OSHA can help employers train and protect their employees from preventable workplace injuries,” said Mark Hysell, OSHA’s area director in Eau Claire.
“Our alliance allows us to work together to foster education and provide training to improve worker safety throughout the Chippewa Valley.”
