Back to Concluded Alliances
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Lovell Safety Management Co., LLC (LSM) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and LSM hereby form an Alliance to provide New York State employers, especially small business with information, guidance and access to resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety health through the development of Safety and Health management programs.
OSHA and LSM will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
Develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, including electronic tools and links from OSHA’s and LSM’s Websites.
Speak, exhibit and appear at LSM’s conferences, local meetings and other events such as the Building Industry Exchange and the North East Retail Lumberman’s Association employer information seminars.
Promote and encourage small business participation in OSHA's cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, the Voluntary Protection Program, Consultation and the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.
Share information on best practices as jointly determined by OSHA and LSM of small business worksites with others in the industry and publicize the results through outreach by LSM and through OSHA or LSM developed training programs and materials.
Encourage small business to build relationships with OSHA’s Regional and Area Offices to address health and safety issues.
Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings such as the Compensation Insurance Council Expo on issues such as small business safety & health management programs to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
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 quarterly to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA will encourage State Plan States and OSHA Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
