SC OSHA, BE&K Sign Workplace Safety Partnership

BE&K Building Group and South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (SC OSHA) entered into a limited partnership on Thursday, March 22, 2018, to provide the safest possible work environment for subcontractors on the company's building project in downtown Greenville.

With this partnership, SC OSHA will visit the site regularly to help identify and correct potential hazards and also will provide training and incentives to participating contractors who voluntarily improve their safety and health performance.

This agreement with BE&K is consistent with SC OSHA's long-range efforts to develop workplace safety partnerships within the construction industry. It allows for better use of SC OSHA resources, fosters innovation in safety management, and encourages active participation in the safety process on the part of construction/trade association communities.

One of the long-term benefits of partnerships like this one is that subcontractors and employees take what they learn about safety at the BE&K project site to future construction worksites.

This project includes the construction of the Residence Inn and Spring Hill Suites in downtown Greenville. The anticipated completion date of this project is January 2019. SC OSHA previously partnered with BE&K Building Group on the Boeing Expansion Project in Charleston.
