Keene State College and the US Dept. of Labor OSHA Renew Commitment to Protect New England Workers

April 7, 2011, KEENE, NH: Keene State College today announced their mutual agreement to renew an Alliance between the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor Region 1 and Keene State College OSHA Training Institute Education Center. This union marks the first re-signing since the original Alliance Feb. 25, 2009. The signing took place March 29, 2011 at Keene State College.

The Alliance between these two organizations validates the vital work of Keene State College’s OSHA Training Institute Education Center with regional OSHA entities including OSHA’s State Plan, On-site Consultation Project partners, OSHA’s cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, Voluntary Protection Program, SHARP (Safety & Health Achievement Recognition Program for smaller, high hazard employers) all as part of the OSHA national effort.

As a result of these programs, businesses and their employees throughout New England benefit by reducing workplace hazards, processes, related human and financial costs associated with workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. KSC OTIEC is one of 25 OSHA Education Centers throughout the United States.

Keene State College’s cooperative relationship with the U.S. Department of Labor dates back to 1994.

Upon signing the agreement with OSHA’s Regional Administrator for New England, Marthe Kent, Keene State College’s Dean of Professional and Graduate Studies Melinda Treadwell commented “We are very pleased to deepen our long standing partnership with OSHA. We believe our shared commitment to providing training and educational programs to ensure workplace safety and health in our region has had profound, positive impact. Keene State College is honored through this alliance to have continued opportunities to participate in this important work.”
