OKAA believes that the most valuable resource of the aggregates industry is its more than 110,500-person national workforce. OKAA supports increased investment in industry-led safety, health and training programs, which are paramount to building, maintaining and the continued growth of a quality workforce. OKAA also believes that new laws and regulations governing the aggregates industry should be based on sound scientific principles lest they have an unintended negative impact on the industry workforce.
OKAA supports the NSSGA/U.S. Mine Safety & Health Administration Alliance. Years of industry/Agency safety promotion have resulted in a steady decline in the accident incident rate and this downward trend is expected to continue.
