U.S. Department of Labor's OSHA continues safety and health alliance with Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce

AVENEL, N.J. -- The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce renewed a workplace safety and health alliance designed to foster safe and healthy work environments, and to continue to provide leadership and assistance to member organizations and the general public.

Robert D. Kulick, director, and Michael Yarnell, compliance assistance specialist of OSHA's area office in Avenel, represented the agency at a recent signing ceremony.

"OSHA and the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce recognize the value of a collaborative relationship that will help foster workplace safety and health for area employees, said Louis Ricca Jr., acting regional administrator in New York. "This renewed alliance will allow us to further the work the Avenel Area Office started three years ago, and we look forward to continuing this successful effort."

OSHA and the Middlesex County Regional Chamber of Commerce will work together through the alliance to provide local businesses and community organizations with information, guidance and access to training resources to assist them in establishing effective safety and health management systems. The original alliance, initiated in November 2005, is being renewed for two more years.

Employers and employees with questions about this and other OSHA alliances may call the agency's Avenel Area Office at 973-263-1003 or
