From 2005-2012, PMA and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) entered into an alliance agreement to promote worker safety and health in the metalforming industry. Together, we worked to provide information, guidance and access to training resources to help protect employees' health and safety.

Safety First

PMA's Safety First training program is a first-day-on-the-job safety awareness DVD that provides an introduction to safety issues in the metalforming industry.  It is short, to the point and ideal for new employees, temporary workers and contractors.  In addition to the video, the DVD includes a facilitator’s guide with an employee post-test and four industry safety posters.
