Our partnership with OSHA is one of only a few national collaborations between employers and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Today, the ET&D Partnership covers an estimated 80 percent of total workers in the electric line construction industry.
Partnership goals include the following:
- Analyze accident and incident data to identify common causes for fatalities, injuries and illnesses suffered by linemen, apprentices and other appropriate job classifications.
- Develop recommended Best Practices for each identified cause.
- Develop implementation strategies for each Best Practice and promote these strategies among the partners.
- Identify training criteria for foremen, general foremen, supervisors, linemen and apprentices, including training to create industry culture change to place value on safety and health.
