ACC cites several successes the alliance has had in the past couple of years. These include guidance documents focusing on worker and workplace safety, and presentations by OSHA officials at industry meetings. It will continue to focus on workplace practices to reduce and prevent exposure to aliphatic and aromatic diisocyanates.
"OSHA’s renewed alliance with ACC will help ensure that employers and employees in the polyurethane industry are able to recognize the hazards associated with these chemicals, and implement the methods to control employee exposures," said Loren Sweatt, principal deputy assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health.
"We’re excited to continue partnering with OSHA to enhance safety in American workplaces, which remains a top priority for the polyurethanes industry," said Lee Salamone, senior director of CPI. "The alliance is important for cultivating new relationships with not only OSHA, but other organizations within the OSHA Alliance program all working to support safe and healthy workplaces."
