In October 2005, an alliance was formed with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to foster safer and more healthful Lehigh Valley workplaces. This alliance formed the basis of the Lehigh Valley Safety Committee (LVSC), a safety and health collaboration between private employers, non-profit organizations, healthcare, academia and government.
Through monthly presentations, quarterly events and annual expos, the LVSC provides health and safety education. All events are free and all industries and individuals are welcome to attend events and participate on the committee.
