The United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s El

young adults. This alliance allows OSHA to continue to disperse material and knowledge to the

Job Corps which promotes understanding of the workplace safety and health responsibilities of

workers and employers.

If you own a business in the greater El Paso area, this renewed alliance simply reinforces

OSHA’s strong position on workplace safety for young adults entering the work force. As such it

questions or concerns relating to your current occupational safety and health policies and

auditing firm to review them to ensure you are compliant.

If you have any questions about how this alliance will impact your company or if you have any

questions about your current occupational safety and health policies and procedures, please
