Back to Concluded Alliances
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the New York State On-Site Consultation Program (NYS Consultation) and the Western New York offices of the New York State Small Business Development Center (herein referred to as the “WNY SBDC”) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on April 22, 2004. OSHA, NYS Consultation, and the WNY SBDC continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA, NYS Consultation, and the WNY SBDC remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the WNY SBDC recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
The New York State Department of Labor On-Site Consultation Program will provide resources, as necessary and available, to support the training and technical assistance needs of the participants of this alliance. Such assistance may be in the form of on-site consultation visits and/or occupational safety and health training. Findings from any on-site consultation surveys will be kept confidential, so long as the requesting employer agrees to correct any serious hazards that may be identified. There is no cost to the alliance participants for any assistance provided by the On-Site Consultation Program.
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.
In addition, the implementation team will continue to meet on a regular schedule to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA will afford the opportunity for representatives of the Occupational Safety and Health State Plan Association and the association of state Consultation Projects to participate as well.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years from the date of signing and will automatically be renewed annually thereafter. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of all signatories and may be terminated for any reason with 30 days written notice from any signatory.
