Theater Alliance Seeks to Avoid Workplace Accidents

While the entertainment industry is known for glamour and excitement, entertainment workers in Connecticut and across the country can deal with many dangers in the workplace. Common sources of on-the-job injuries include falls and electrical dangers as well as issues caused by poor ergonomics. That's why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will renew its alliance with entertainment industry groups in order to help promote safer workplaces.

The alliance, which was renewed for five years, partners OSHA with the United States Institute for Theatre Technology and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. The three organizations involved will share relevant resources and information in order to help prevent workplace accidents and injuries in the entertainment industry. While OSHA will share information with the industry groups about relevant standards for safety, the industry and union representatives will also provide additional details about safety technologies for portable power and fall prevention.

The alliance will also involve the distribution of information about multi-industry safety campaigns as well as the general rulemaking and enforcement process used by OSHA. This is one of several alliance programs used by the agency in order to target specific industries for improvement in workplace safety. OSHA generally links with interested groups like trade unions, professional associations and industry representatives.

Unfortunately, many workplaces across the United States continue to pose ongoing dangers to the health and safety of employees. Workers who are injured on the job may be entitled to compensation. A workers' compensation lawyer could help an injured employee through the filing process.
