US Department of Labor Promotes Workplace Safety at Manufacturing Facility Expansion in Pennsylvania

ALLENTOWN, PA — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Alvin H. Butz Inc. have established a strategic partnership to promote workplace safety during an expansion project at B. Braun Medical Inc., a medical device manufacturer in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The partnership seeks to educate workers about how to control or eliminate serious hazards and how to establish effective safety and health programs during construction of a 310,000-square-foot building and 10,295-square-foot maintenance building and parking lot.
Through the Strategic Partnership Program, OSHA works with employers, employees, professional and trade associations, labor organizations and other interested stakeholders to establish specific goals, strategies and performance measures to improve worker safety and health.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to help ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
