Federal OSHA, Oregon Occupational Safety and Health and Lamar Advertising Co. offices in Oregon, Idaho and Washington have established an alliance to provide workers with information, guidance and access to training resources on workplace safety and health. The two-year alliance includes emphasis on hazards inherent to the outdoor advertising industry such as falls, personal protective equipment, safe use of ladders, electrical hazards and control of hazardous energy, among others.
On Sept. 15, 2023, OSHA Deputy Regional Administrator Jack Rector and Lamar Advertising Co. Vice-President and General Manager Brendon Smith met to formalize the alliance.
Through the alliance, OSHA is committed to jointly provide management and employees of Lamar Advertising with information, guidance and access to training to help protect workers, promote a culture of workplace safety and health, and increase the understanding of workers’ rights and employers’ responsibilities under the law.
Alliance members will use data to design joint outreach and communication activities, and foster collaboration to enhance workplace safety and health. An implementation team will be created to assess and share information on progress toward the alliance’s goals.
The new alliance recognizes that OSHA State Plans and On-Site Consultation partners are an integral part of OSHA’s efforts, and that information about the products and activities of the alliance may be shared with these partners for the advancement of common goals.
