Bridgeport-based Viking Construction has begun a new strategic partnership program with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that is designed to increase job safety knowledge and health awareness through monthly on-site training and collaboration with the federal agency.

According to the company, one of the first programs  under this partnership was an awareness event at the Strawberry Hill School extension construction site in Stamford, which brought in an audience of more than 100 workers and highlighted the dangers of construction falls and how falls and related injuries can be avoided.
Under this program, OSHA will review materials and provide additional resources to help Viking take advantage of best safety practices and programs while inspecting its job sites as part of an injury and safety analysis.

“Our employees and our subcontractors are the lifeblood of all we do, and we value their safety and well-being above everything else,” Viking Construction President Anthony Gaglio Sr. said. “Our safety program is thorough and comprehensive, covering topics from job injuries, fire, electrical and chemical safety, traffic safety and more. This new OSHA partnership ensures we have our bases covered, our material is current and relevant, and that we are not overlooking any possible hazards. We also welcome the opportunity to increase community outreach to influence future construction workers.”
