AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE AMERICAN SHIPBUILDING ASSOCIATION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Shipbuilding Association (ASA) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and ASA hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed July 15, 2003 and renewed January 13, 2006. OSHA and ASA will continue to provide ASA members and others in the shipbuilding industry with information and guidance that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to shipyard safety and health hazards. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and ASA recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and ASA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of both organizations will meet to develop a plan of action, determine working procedures, and identify the roles and responsibilities of the participants. In addition, they will meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. Team members will include representatives of OSHA’s Directorates of Cooperative and State Programs, Enforcement Programs, Standards and Guidance, and Science, Technology and Medicine and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either signatory may terminate it for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both signatories.
