Specific goals of the Minnesota OSHA Compliance partnership programs

To reduce by 3 percent annually (see MNOSHA's strategic plan) the number of injuries, illnesses and fatalities affecting participant employers, with a focus on eliminating injuries and fatalities resulting from those hazards that are the four leading causes of death on construction sites (falls, struck-by, caught in or between, and electrocutions).

To increase the number of construction contractors that implement effective safety and health programs and provide effective safety and health training for management, supervisors and employees.

To recognize those contractors where managers and employees work together to develop safety and health management systems that go beyond basic compliance with all applicable OSHA standards and result in immediate and long-term prevention of job-related injuries and illnesses.

To promote open lines of communication between MNOSHA and the construction industry in pursuit of safety.

Level 3 – Cooperative Compliance Partnership program

The partnerships acknowledge the importance of providing a safe, healthful work environment in construction and seek a working relationship that creates mutual trust and respect among all parties – including project owners and construction workers – involved in the construction process. In the first two programs below, participants may achieve three award levels:  basic, intermediate and peak.

Level 3 – Cooperative Compliance Partnership program agreement

MN ABC partnership

The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) signed a major safety-initiative in March 2006, designed to reduce the number of injuries, illnesses and fatalities at participant construction industry employers. The partnership was revised in 2012 and the new initiative was jointly agreed upon by the Minnesota Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (MN ABC) and Minnesota OSHA.
