Promoting the National Dialogue on Workplace Safety and Health
During the second year of the Alliance, one session was held for the KCA membership describing
OSHA’s newest Voluntary Protection Program, "Mobile Workforce, Demonstration for Construction". No
other activities have been planned for the Alliance. As we were working together to develop the
Alliance’s renewal agreement, it became clear to both organizations that KCA is focusing its
resources on other projects and priorities. As such, the existing alliance has been concluded. CAS
has left the door open to continue dialogue with KCA in the future to answer questions, speak at
events and to re-establish an alliance.
