PennDOT finished the 2010 calendar year with approximately $2.2 billion in lettings but has forecast that 2011 will only see $1.7 billion, which was the level of the program back in 2006- 2007. The department said this decrease is largely due to the expiration of the federal Economic Stimulus payments as well as a decrease in state funding and stagnet federal funding. To put into perspective, PennDOT’s lettings were $2.8 billion in 2009 due to the billion dollars in economic stimulus funds.

CAEP SAFETY NEWS Quick Action By OSHA Inspector Helps Avert Worker Injuries In Trench Collapse When a compliance safety and health officer from OSHA's Chicago North Area Office arrived at a jobsite in January to conduct a trench inspection, he observed an employee working in an unprotected six-foot deep trench that had undermined sections. The compliance officer identified the hazards to the employer who voluntarily removed the worker from the trench. Within minutes, the undermined section collapsed directly onto the area where the employee had been working. Detailed information on excavation safety is available on OSHA's Trenching and Excavation Safety and Health Topics web page. March 1, 2011 Bulletin # 9 Page 3 Alliance Program Roundtable Meets to Promote Construction Worker Safety and Health The OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable met Feb. 17 at Department of Labor headquarters in Washington, D.C., to share information about OSHA initiatives and the agency's direction. OSHA Assistant Secretary David Michaels addressed 21 representatives from 14 Alliances about subjects including OSHA's 40th anniversary, Regulatory Agenda and FY 2012 Budget Request*. The group also received overviews of OSHA's most frequently cited standards, as well as updates on topics including distracted driving, injury and illness prevention programs, cranes and derricks, residential fall protection, and the Severe Violator Enforcement Program. The group provided feedback on new Roundtable-developed Construction Safety Design Solutions that focus on preventing falls in the construction industry. The Roundtable members previously developed a variety of free compliance assistance materials for workers and employers, as well as Construction Safety Design Solutions that OSHA is considering as the possible basis for OSHA compliance assistance products.
