From Glenn:

Hello Roundtable folks,

Tim Irving, Assistant Regional Administrator for Cooperative and State Programs, US DOL/OSHA Region 1 Office, JFK Federal Building, Room E 340, Boston, MA, 02203, will present the ever popular “Annual OSHA Update” and recap the agency’s fiscal year enforcement and outreach results for FY 2017.  The review will cover the national, regional and local inspection and citation information as well as the regional fatal accident statistics. The CSREM has been instrumental in the success of the OSHA outreach efforts and other campaigns. Tim will give an update on how the success of these local events have national implications and how we can support upcoming training.

As submitted by Peter Barletta CAS  to The OSHA Quick Takes an article on the OSHA and CSREM Alliance Renewal signing:

  • The Construction Safety Roundtable of Eastern Massachusetts renewed a five-year agreement with OSHA’s offices in Braintree and Andover, Mass., to encourage a dialogue between OSHA and local industry. Members will share safe work practices, provide updates on OSHA procedures and policies, promote involvement in OSHA safety stand-downs, and create safety and health communication tools. Since 2000, the Alliance delivered the OSHA 10-hour Construction Outreach Training Program to more than 10,000 vocational high school students throughout Massachusetts.

The open renewal membership expired with last month’s meeting – we will move forward with our regular protocols whereas one needs to be sponsored by an existing member to join our Roundtable group.
