Back to Concluded Alliances
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the New York State On-Site Consultation Program (NYS Consultation), and the Bronx Small Business Development Center (Bronx SBDC) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on February 09, 2004. OSHA, NYS Consultation, and the Bronx SBDC continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA, NYS Consultation, and the Bronx SBDC remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health especially by providing Bronx SBDC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employee’s health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to ergonomic, chemical, construction, and workplace violence hazards. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the Bronx SBDC recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
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 all signatory organizations will continue to meet to take further action in determining working procedures, and identifying the roles and responsibilities of the participants. The implementation team will meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance; at least one of these meetings will be in person.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Any 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 all signatories.
Signed on this 13th day of October, 2006:
