Brayman Construction and Trumbull Corporation are proud to announce a five-year Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Strategic Partnership for the Bayfront Parkway Improvement Project in Erie, PA. This is the longest OSHA Partnership in Erie’s history, reflecting a strong commitment to workplace safety and health.

The goals of this partnership include reducing the total number of days away from work injury and illness cases by 3%, controlling workplace hazards by assisting contractors with the implementation of an effective safety and health management system, conduct weekly self-inspections to reduce exposure of workers to safety and health hazards, and to maintain a continuous dialog that support various safety and health campaigns/initiatives.

“At Brayman, safety is not just a policy; it’s our way of life. This partnership with OSHA and Trumbull Corporation reinforces our long-standing dedication to ensuring the highest safety standards,” said Stephen Muck, Chairman and CEO of Brayman Construction.

Mark Gentile, President of Trumbull Corporation, added, “Our partnership with Brayman Construction has been built over several successful projects, each reinforcing our shared commitment to delivering a safe project. This partnership with OSHA, is another step in our collaborative journey, reflecting Safety as a shared core value, in every aspect of our work.”

“Securing an OSHA Strategic Partnership reflects our continual efforts to lead the industry in safety practices,” stated Angela Ravenscroft, Corporate Safety Director at Brayman Construction. “This achievement is another milestone in our ongoing mission to provide a safe working environment for everyone.”

Christopher Snedden, Assistant Area Director for OSHA stated, “Anytime OSHA and responsible contractors from the private sector can work together to minimize hazards in the workplace and decrease the number of injuries, the result is always positive. We commend Brayman Construction and Trumbull Corporation for taking a proactive approach in prioritizing safety and committing to ensuring safe working conditions.”

The Bayfront Parkway Improvement Project, valued at $111.7 million, aims to strengthen the connectivity within the city of Erie by enhancing accessibility and safety for all its users. This project is not just an infrastructural development; it’s a step towards a safer, more connected community.

About OSHA:

In 1970, the United States Congress and President Richard Nixon created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a national public health agency dedicated to the basic proposition that no worker should have to choose between their life and their job. The OSHA law makes it clear that the right to a safe workplace is a basic human right. Together with our state  partners, OSHA has tackled fatal safety hazards and health risks. We have established common sense standards and enforced the law against those who put workers at risk. Our standards, enforcement actions, compliance assistance and cooperative programs have saved thousands of lives and prevented countless injuries and illnesses.

Although our task is far from complete, our progress gives us hope and confidence that OSHA will continue to make a lasting difference in the lives of our nation’s workers, their families and their communities.
