The PCA and the US MSHA has renewed an ongoing alliance aimed at fostering safer and more healthful working conditions in the cement industry for a further three years. The agreement was started in 2008 and has enabled the PCA and MSHA to share information, guidance and training resources to help protect the health and safety of all cement industry employees.
“Over the past seven years, this alliance has facilitated a productive collaboration between the cement industry and the regulatory agency, which has resulted in measurable safety and health benefits to cement industry employees,” said PCA President and CEO James G. Toscas.
“MSHA and the Portland Cement Association have cultivated a strong, cooperative relationship since the beginning of our formal alliance in 2008,” said Joseph A. Main, assistant secretary of labour for mine safety and health. “Our joint goal has always been protecting worker safety and health, and I believe we are achieving that through open discussions about safety procedures, best practices, training and outreach.”
