The partnership between Iowa OSHA Consultation and Master Builders of Iowa has been recognized by the United States Department of Labor. The WORKSAFE program received an “OSCAR” at a recent regional conference meeting for its collaborative efforts between the industry and Iowa OSHA. The OSCAR (On-Site Consultation Achievement Recognition) was award to Iowa OSHA Consultation for its efforts to work with contractors and construction companies – via the WORKSAFE program - that traditionally never utilized OSHA consultation services.
As you may know, WORKSAFE is the nation’s first safety program involving a public-private partnership. Since 2012, WORKSAFE has been offering a customized safety approach that is unique to each project and job site team. WORKSAFE is a construction job site recognition program that consists of pre-construction planning, job site surveys focused on preventing hazardous conditions from occurring, while also providing recognition that safety is a top priority for all involved in the project.
