Harper General Contractors and SC OSHA Sign Safety Partnership

Harper General Contractors and SC OSHA Sign Safety Partnership

Harper General Contractors (Harper) and the South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (SC OSHA) entered into a limited partnership agreement on Thursday, March 11, 2021, to provide the safest possible work environment for employees working on this construction project in McCormick.

With this partnership, SC OSHA will visit the site regularly to help identify and correct potential hazards and also will provide training and incentives to participating contractors who voluntarily improve their safety and health performance.

“We appreciate Harper General Contractors showing its commitment to providing a safe and healthy worksite for their employees by partnering with our SC OSHA team,” LLR Director, Emily Farr said. “We look forward to working with the Harper team through the life of the project.”

This agreement is consistent with SC OSHA's long-range efforts to develop workplace safety partnerships within the construction industry. It allows for better use of SC OSHA resources, fosters innovation in safety management, and encourages active participation in the safety process on the part of construction/trade association communities.

One of the long-term benefits of partnerships like this one is that subcontractors and workers take what they learn about safety at the project site to future construction worksites.
