MEMBER NEWS Gilbane Building Co. Signs OSHA Strategic Partnership Program Congratulations to Gilbane Building Company on signing an Occupational Safety and Health Administration Strategic Partnership on Tuesday, April 26, 2016. The signing ceremony was officiated by Mark Briggs, OSHA Area Director, Houston South Office and Joann Figueroa, OSHA Area Director, Houston North Office. The official agreement between AGC Houston and OSHA was signed on September 4, 2014 to formalize the "cooperative effort between these entities committed to encouraging construction companies to voluntarily improve their safety and health performance, providing methods to assist them in their efforts, and recognizing companies with exemplary safety and health programs," stated Figueroa. "It's an invaluable cooperative relationship between OSHA and the partners. We appreciate being part of the AGC Houston Safety Committee and commend you (Gilbane) for qualifying for this partnership." "This has been a longstanding partnership between the AGC and OSHA. There aren't too many partnerships left in OSHA (in the United States) because the organization is moving more towards alliances. Having a relationship with OSHA and doing the right thing ... is important. We all benefit from sharing best practices information and solutions," Briggs added. Congratulations as well to AGC Houston members Allstate Commercial Flooring; Anslow Bryant Construction, Ltd.; W.S. Bellows Construction Corp.; Brookstone, LP; Keystone Concrete; Linbeck Group, LLC; SpawGlass Construction Corp.; Tellepsen; Trio Electric, Ltd.; and TAS Commercial Concrete Construction, LLC who also have signed OSHA partnership agreements.
