The Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA) is a partner of OSHA's national Safe + Sound Campaign. The Safe + Sound Campaign encourages every workplace in the United States to have a safety and health program, a proactive approach to identifying and managing workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness.
SEAA collaborated with OSHA in the development of a fact sheet for structural steel and precast concrete contractors. The fact sheet provides reminders of the potential hazards facing this industry, including falls, struck by incidents, and lifting/lowering over exertion. The document also provides resources to help contractors address these hazards.
Successful safety and health programs include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic process for finding and fixing hazards. Safe + Sound Week takes place Aug.13 to 19, 2018. SEAA encourages employers in the steel erection and precast concrete construction industry to participate.
