In 2018, NAWIC is partnering in support of OSHA’s Safe + Sound Campaign. The Campaign is an initiative that aims to encourage every workplace in the United States to have a safety and health program that includes management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards.
Throughout the year, by linking to the website our membership will have access to free live webinars, educational content, and local events that can help support the adoption of safety and health programs. We’ll be sharing information on these opportunities as they become available. Additionally, we encourage you to show your commitment to safety by hosting events and activities that can help energize or initiate a safety and health program during the second annual Safe + Sound Week on August 13-19, 2018.

- Alliance Update:
As part of our efforts to keep you informed of OSHA’s activities, OSHA has issued a final rule to a delay the electronic reporting compliance date of the Improve Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule, from July 1, 2017 to December 15, 2017. The delay provides employers the same four-month window for submitting data that the original rule would have provided.
For more information, please see the OSHA news release and the public inspection version of the Federal Register Notice below.
The final rule will be published in the Federal Register on Friday November 24, 2017.
Through the Alliance, OSHA and NAWIC will work together to provide NAWIC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to ergonomic hazards, sanitation hazards, and issues related to personal protective equipment selection in the industry, with the focus on a subset of construction workers with unique needs.
