OSHA alliance with entertainment industry to continue

Workers in Georgia who are part of the entertainment industry should be aware that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has renewed an alliance with two entertainment industry organizations for an additional five years. Along with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the United States Institute for Theatre Technology, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts of the United States, its Territories and Canada, OSHA will take steps to protect the health and safety of entertainment industry workers.

The IATSE is a labor union that advocates on behalf of craftspersons, technicians and artisans who work in various aspects of the entertainment industry, such as television broadcasting and live theater. The USITT provides networking and development opportunities to its members.

OSHA uses its alliance program to create collaborative relationships with organizations that want to ensure the safety and health of workers. These organizations include unions, professional and trade organizations, businesses, and more.

Members of the IATSE and USITT will be provided instructive and informative resources about industry hazards, which includes dangers related to ergonomics, falls, electricity and more. The IATSE and USITT will counsel state, federal and consultation personnel about industry safety subject matter, including how to use movable power distribution systems in a safe manner and prevent falls.

The alliance's participants will still disseminate information about OSHA campaigns related to enforcement initiatives, outreach and rulemaking. These initiatives include the Safe and Sound Campaign for Safety and Health Programs and the National Safety Stand-Down to Prevent Falls in Construction.

A personal injury attorney may advise clients who sustain workplace injuries about the type of financial compensation to which they may be entitled. Assistance may be provided regarding how to file for workers' compensation benefits. A lawyer may also advise clients whether the circumstances of their injuries warrant a third-party liability lawsuit.
