Continuing in the long history of ADSC and OSHA alliances, Oregon OSHA and the West Coast Chapter signed an alliance October 10 that aims to raise awareness of workplace safety and health, and to reduce illness and injury rates in the construction of drilled shafts, earth retention systems, micropiles, and other related foundation drilling operations.
The alliance’s goals include providing expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards; speaking, exhibiting or appearing at Oregon OSHA’s or WCC-ADSC’s events; and sharing information about best practices. The alliance will meet regularly to keep communication lines open and productive.
This alliance came together out of the Oregon OSHA safety seminar the WCC held earlier this year with the help of ADSC and Rick Marshall. Colin Perkins, Malcolm Drilling, WCC Safety chairperson worked with our OSHA cheerleader, Craig Hamelund, to make the alliance a reality but Colin was unable to join us for the signing due to the wildfires in Sonoma – our best wishes to Colin and everyone impacted by the horrific wildfires. Special thanks to John Bickford, DBM Contractors, for driving down from Seattle to attend the signing.
WCC is reaching out to both Washington and California OSHA regions to reengage in our alliances.
