Representatives from the partnering institutions met July 15 to formalize the agreement that will ensure worker safety and health during construction of the Baxter International pharmaceutical plant in Covington, GA.

The partners will work together to reduce worker injuries and illnesses, increase safety and health training, share best work practices, and ensure employers have appropriate safety and health management systems.

This is the third partnership OSHA and Georgia Tech have formed this year to protect workers on campus projects. For more information, see the partnership agreement.
