The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Connecticut Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Division (CONN-OSHA), New Haven Building Trades and Dimeo Construction Company, have established a strategic partnership to promote workplace safety and health, and educate employees on construction hazards during construction of a new science building in New Haven.
When the University of Rhode Island committed to building a new engineering complex, two decisions were obvious. One, five historical buildings, all built in the late 1950s and early 1960s would have to go; and two, the new building needed to be a cutting-edge structure that spoke clearly of its purpose.
