Scaffold & Access Industry Association & OSHA Alliance
In February 2008, the Scaffold & Access Industry Association (SAIA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced their alliance to provide SAIA's members, and others in the construction industry, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will focus on reducing safety and health hazards associated with the use of mast climbing scaffolding and aerial lift equipment. In particular, the Alliance will address reducing and preventing exposure to fall and caught-in-between hazards.
