WASHINGTON – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has signed an alliance with the National Association of Women in Construction to develop training resources to protect women in the construction industry. The alliance will focus on musculoskeletal and sanitation hazards and issues related to poorly-fitting personal protective equipment. Today OSHA announced a new OSHA-NAWIC web page that addresses these issues.
During the two-year agreement, the alliance intends to develop training programs, fact sheets and other outreach resources on musculoskeletal hazards, sanitation and PPE selection. The alliance will focus on these and other safety and health issues specific to female construction workers.

The Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity is holding a women's weekend build-a-thon that will bring women together for a great cause, gain new skills and confidence, and also serve as a great platform to network and make new friends. They will be inviting many notable women from the local area as well as around the state. It will be a weekend you will definitely remember and be telling everyone about, and we will be adding lots of great things like prizes, professional photography, and speakers, too.
Two of our NAWIC NH members participated in a similar Women's Build event with the Greater Manchester Habitat for Humanity group this past spring! It was a great time had by all!
Please check out the flyer on this event and contact Diana Daigle with any questions.

Our very own NAWIC member, Kathy “Hot” Peppers from Manchester Roofing went live on the "Girard at large" radio show to discuss her business, their mission and what kind of innovative things (like their Care Club) they’re doing around town.
