OSHA advisory committee will address safety standards in construction

Wayne Creasap, a District Representative for the Safety and Health Department for the International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental and Reinforcing Iron Workers, joined the America’s Work Force Union Podcast to discuss his recent appointment to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH).

Established by statute, the ACCSH provides advice and assistance in construction standards and policy matters to the Assistant Secretary of OSHA. Its 15 members include union members and agency representatives who work on safety related initiatives, including what standards need to be addressed if the infrastructure bill becomes law.

Creasap also spoke about opportunities available through the Department of Apprenticeship and Training sponsored by the Iron Workers International Union. Through apprenticeship, tremendous employment opportunities are available in the trades. Participants who graduate from the program incur no student debt and enjoy good paying careers.
