Alliance Aims to Protect Safety & Health of Female Construction Workers

OSHA and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) recently renewed their alliance to  promote safe and healthful working conditions for female construction workers. The 5-year alliance will focus on hazards of particular concern to women in the construction industry, including PPE selection, sanitation, and workplace intimidation and violence.

“Women represent a small, but growing segment of the construction workforce,” says Loren Sweatt, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSH. “OSHA’s renewed alliance with NAWIC will continue to promote innovative solutions to safety and health hazards unique to female construction workers.”
