handshakeOSHA has renewed its Alliance with Altec Industries Inc. to continue working together to protect workers from fall, electrocution, tip-over and other hazards related to operating and maintaining cranes, chippers, digger derricks and insulated and non-insulated aerial devices including tree care devices.

Altec services the utility, telecommunications, contractor and tree care industries.

During the two-year agreement, the Alliance will work to provide Altec employees and others, including limited English proficiency workers, with information, guidance and access to training resources. These resources will help employers protect the health and safety of workers, and assist workers with understanding their rights and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).

Through the Alliance, Altec will develop compliance assistance products on crane safety and continue to provide OSHA field staff with Best Practice Seminars on Mobile Cranes, Digger Derricks, Insulated and non-insulated Aerial Devices, and Wood Chipper Devices. Altec will also support OSHA initiatives and campaigns, such as the Heat Illness Prevention campaign, as well as North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week.

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. These groups include businesses, unions, consulates, trade or professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations and educational institutions. OSHA and the groups work together to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, share information with workers and employers, and educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities.
