The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Lehigh Valley
Area Labor-Management Council (LVALMC) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on October 14, 2005.
OSHA and LVALMC continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety.
OSHA and LVALMC remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and
health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and LVALMC recognize that OSHA's State Plan and 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.
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 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
both signatories and may be terminated for any reason with 30 days written notice from either
