DALLAS, TX – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Manhattan Construction Company recently signed a partnership to help protect approximately 1,000 workers during construction of Globe Life Field in Arlington. The 1.7 million-square-foot project will be the new home of the Texas Rangers, Major League Baseball organization.
The partnership will focus on reducing and preventing exposure to construction hazards at the sports and entertainment complex. Partners will also provide a mentoring and training program, and promote communication between contractors and subcontractors to improve safety and health.
Manhattan Construction Company is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and provides general building, construction management, and design-build services.
Through its Strategic Partnership Program, OSHA works with employers, employees, professional and trade associations, labor organizations, and other interested stakeholders to establish specific goals, strategies, and performance measures to improve worker safety and health.
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education, and assistance.
