SC OSHA Partners With Company Building UofSC Campus Village 

Juneau Construction and the South Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Administration (SC OSHA) entered into a limited partnership agreement on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, to provide the safest possible work environment for employees working on the construction project in Columbia.

With this partnership, SC OSHA will visit the UofSC Campus Village site often to help employers and employees identify and correct potential hazards on the worksite. SC OSHA also will provide training and guidance to participating contractors to improve their safety and health performance and to build a solid safety culture within the workforce.

The Campus Village project is a multi-phased development with Phase I consisting of demolition of one student housing structure and two surface lots, making way for new student housing, new structural parking, and a new dining hall.

“This partnership shows the strong commitment Juneau Construction has to protecting the health and safety of its workers,” LLR Director Emily Farr said. “We are proud to be working with this team to support them in this commitment.”

This agreement 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.

“Safety has been and always will be Juneau’s number one priority,” Greg Cornwell, Vice President of Operations, said. “Partnerships like this ensure that each person who enters the jobsite goes home each night to their families. We are committed to working hand-in-hand with SC OSHA to ensure the health, safety, and wellness of each one of our workers, and we look forward to a successful partnership as this project comes to fruition.”

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