Covers health, training, fall prevention awareness
March 20, 2013
The Steel Erectors Association of Metropolitan Philadelphia and Vicinity Inc. and the Iron Workers Local Union No. 401 have renewed an alliance with OSHA designed to to promote workplace safety and health, provide guidance and training resources, and enhance awareness of OSHA's national fall prevention campaign among steel erection workers in the greater Philadelphia area.
A Brooklyn contractor was aware that the steel structure he was erecting was “unstable,” according to OSHA, which found numerous hazards contributing to the fatal collapse of that structure last fall in Brighton Beach, NY.
This past Sunday’s The New York Times Magazine (9/4) ran a cover story on “Where Steel Meets Sky,” about the workers rebuilding Manhattan’s skyline with the construction of the One World Trade Center skyscraper.
