Originally signed Sept. 11, 2001, the partnership was last renewed on March 14, 2013. The new agreement was signed on March 24, and remains in effect for five years.
The partnership will require all employers, contractors and sub-contractors to implement written safety and health programs, conduct training, job site inspections and involve workers in weekly site safety meetings.
The partnership impacts more than 800 union and non-union construction companies throughout Missouri, eastern Kansas and parts of Nebraska.
Employers designated as “Build Safe Partnership Program” participants by the Builders’ Association will be required to implement written safety and health programs, conduct training and job site inspections, and involve workers in weekly site safety meetings.
OSHA will review these programs at least annually to track and compare information on injury and illness rates, share best practices and review goals.
