OSHA Appoints

Sat October 19, 2002 - West Edition

NUCA contractor member Greg Strudwick, of Strudwick & Associates in Dallas, TX, recently received a two-year appointment to OSHA’s Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH).

ACCSH is a 15-member committee charged with advising the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health on standards, policies and practices related to the protection of construction workers from worksite hazards. Strudwick was appointed as an employee representative.

“It’s a tremendous honor for NUCA to have Greg appointed to this prestigious committee,” said George Kennedy, NUCA’s vice president, safety. “His many years of experience as a contractor and as a safety instructor are invaluable as he represents the interests of the underground utility construction on this committee.”

Strudwick is the first NUCA member since Delaine Nelson (InfraSource Inc., New Berlin, WI) nearly 10 years ago, to serve on this committee.

As a long-time member of NUCA, Strudwick is a NUCA instructor for the Excavation Safety and Competent Person Training Program, and the Confined Space Entry Program. He chairs both the NUCA Safety Education and Training Subcommittee, and the Safety Ambassador Club; is an instructor at the NUCA Safety Directors Forum, and co-teaches at the NUCA Train the Trainer program.

In addition, Strudwick serves as chair of the NUCA 2003 Convention, which will take place March 18-21, 2003, in San Antonio, TX.
