Metro Tech Joins OSHA Alliance Program
Metro Technology Centers recently joined The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Alliance program. The partnership was made official in a signing event led by Metro Tech and the Oklahoma Department of Labor's (ODOL) OSHA Consultation Division. Metro Tech is among ten Oklahoma organizations that have joined the program and is currently the state's only CareerTech organization to do so.
OSHA's Alliance Program enables the agency to develop voluntary, collaborative working relationships with organizations committed to workplace safety and health. Additionally, the program allows OSHA to work with organizations like labor unions, educational institutions, government agencies and more to share information about OSHA's initiatives and compliance assistance resources with workers and employers.
Metro Tech's Economic and Workforce Development Department Adult Safety Trainer Cody McPherson said the OSHA Alliance will benefit those who undergo safety training at Metro Tech and strengthen and empower the local workforce.
"At Metro Tech, our top priorities are safety and education. Our partnership with OSHA and the Oklahoma Department of Labor's OSHA Consultation Division underscores our shared commitment to promoting safe practices for students, partners, and the community," McPherson said. "Together, we empower individuals through information, guidance, and training, enhancing their grasp of rights and responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act."
