OSHA has entered partnership with Skanska Walsh Joint Venture to enhance workplace safety and health for about 1,600 employees of the LaGuardia Airport Central Terminal Building Redevelopment Project.
The partnership is a collaborative effort between federal officials, private companies, and labor organizations to provide education, training, hazard prevention, and monitoring of workplace safety concerns during the $4 billion redevelopment of the Central Terminal at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
“The OSHA and Skanska Walsh partnership will allow us to focus on preventing work-related fatalities and injuries, and controlling or eliminating serious workplace hazards,” said Robert Kulick, OSHA’s regional administrator in New York. “It will also establish a foundation for effective job site safety and health programs serving approximately 250 subcontractors and their employees at LaGuardia Airport through the project’s scheduled completion in 2022.”
The project includes the finance, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of Central Terminal B, including construction work for supporting infrastructure and a new central entrance hall.
The Strategic Partnership Program helps encourage, assist, and recognize proactive partner efforts to eliminate serious workplace hazards.
