The alliance provides a working relationship between MIOSHA, PMA, and the PMA East and West Michigan Districts, to develop and disseminate information that helps protect the safety and health of Michigan workers through outreach and communication, as well as influence employers and management to ensure that safety is viewed as a priority in the workplace.

Among the goals of the alliance: Reduce and prevent exposure to ergonomic hazards, and address press safety issues such as machine guarding and lockout/tagout to prevent amputations and other injuries; and create and develop training resources and other materials to promote worker safety in the metalforming industry.For more information about forming an alliance or partnership with MIOSHA, visit www.michigan.gov/miosha.
