Through the IWLA-OSHA Alliance, OSHA and IWLA will provide the association's members and others, including owners and operators of public warehouses and other third-party warehouses, with information, guidance, and access to training resources. OSHA and IWLA will help to protect employees’ safety and health, including hard-to-reach and youth workers, by addressing material handling, forklift safety and Hazard Communication (HAZCOM). The Alliance goals include:
Training and education:
- Develop and make available training and education programs on material handling, forklift safety, HAZCOM and other health and safety issues targeted to the unique issue in the public warehouse industry.
Outreach and communication:
- Develop safety and health assistance tools for the warehouse industry, including a safety and health inspection checklist for warehouse managers and provide expertise to OSHA to develop an eTool for the warehouse industry.
- Increase hard-to-reach and youth workers' access to safety and health information and training resources, including developing and providing materials in Spanish, through community based organizations.
