OSHA and USS/Tyco will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
OSHA’s Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training and education, outreach and communication and promoting a national dialogue on workplace safety and health. These Alliances have proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing any of that party’s products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular party’s products or services.
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. Team members will include representatives of USS/Tyco and OSHA, and the team will meet at least quarterly, either in person or by phone, to track and share information on activities and evaluate results in achieving the goals of the Alliance.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Ether signatory may terminate it for any reason at any time provided they give 30 days written notice.
