OSHA’s Alliance Renewal with Chippewa Valley Technical College

Eau Claire, Wis. - Workers from the greater Eau Claire will continue to benefit from the renewal of the alliance between Chippewa Technical College (CVTC) and the OSHA designed to prevent and reduce some of the most common workplace illness and injuries threats.

The formal alliance between the two was signed in Eau Claire to develop safety training programs and materials that focus on the relevant health and safety issues. Over the past two years, the alliance of CVTC and OSHA has provided workplace safety and health courses for supervisors, employees and management officials those employed in the district of CVTC and all the area covered by the alliance.

"This alliance continues to help us combat all kinds of hazards through the development and presentation of programs designed to keep working men and women safe on the job," said Mark Hysell, OSHA’s Area Director in Eau Claire. "Working with an organization that has the stature and reputation of the Chippewa Valley Technical College to combat these issues ultimately will make area workplaces safer places to be."

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with the groups those committed to safety and health, including trade or professional organizations, businesses, educational institutions, to power resources and expertise to develop compliance assistance tools and resources and share the information with the employees and employers to prevent illness, injuries and fatalities in a workplace. The organization and OSHA sign a formal agreement with goals that address education and training, communication and outreach, and promoting the national dialogue on safety and health of a workplace.
