The Division:

  • Develops model safety programs for key hazards in construction and other areas of Laborer employment

  • Investigates and promotes opportunities to save on workers’ compensation insurance

  • Disseminates research findings on important issues of worksite health and safety

  • Monitors and provides comments on regulatory matters before OSHA, FHWA, EPA, NIOSH and other agencies

  • Assists with regulatory compliance

  • Advances partnerships with unions, trade associations and regulatory agencies to implement programs that address mutual health and safety concerns

  • Upon request, conducts training for signatory contractor associations, signatory safety officers, LIUNA Training & Education Fund instructors, LIUNA regional organizers and attendees at the LIUNA Tri-Fund Conference

While taking initiative in all these areas, the Occupational Safety and Health Division staff welcomes questions and input from LIUNA members, LIUNA signatory employers and LIUNA business managers and agents.
