Since 2008, The National Association of Landscape Professionals, Fairfax, Virginia, has been a partner with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in its Alliance Program, working together to improve workplace health and safety in the landscape industry.
NALP and OSHA recently renewed the collaborative relationship through the Alliance Program Ambassador partnership, helping to ensure that NALP members will receive OSHA regulatory and enforcement information as well as safety resources.
OSHA and NALP continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to improve safety and health practices in the landscape industry and commit to continue their work together through the Alliance Program Ambassador relationship.
Throughout the partnership, NALP has developed the 10-Hour OSHA Construction Safety Course for the Landscape Industry and shared hundreds of safety resources for landscape and lawn care companies.
“Industry safety is critical,” says Britt Wood, NALP CEO. “NALP is committed to raising the level of professionalism in the industry by helping companies strengthen their safety programs through our partnership with OSHA, our Safe Company Program, tailgate training, and our Safety Awards.”
