The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United States of America has signed a two-year agreement with West Virginia University Safety & Health Development and the West Virginia State Counselling Program to provide safety and health research, advice, and counseling to individuals. Members of the Coalition can share information on Occupational Safety and Health Act rules and regulations, as well as national, regional, and local focus initiatives, employees’ rights, and employer obligations.
To eliminate workplace deaths, accidents, and diseases, OSHA’s Alliance Program collaborates with organizations dedicated to worker safety and health. Unions, consulates, trading or professional associations, corporations, religious and community-based associations, and educational institutions are among these entities. Employers are responsible for delivering safe and healthy environments for their workers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. OSHA’s job is to help ensure that these conditions exist for America’s workers by establishing and implementing standards, as well as training employees, counseling, and support.
