OSHA and DSA hereby form an Alliance to provide DSA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, with a specific focus on reducing workplace injuries, illnesses and deaths among the Spanish-speaking workforce. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and DSA recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and DSA will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
OSHA and the DSA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
OSHA and DSA will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
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 will be formed. The team will be made up of representatives of OSHA, DSA, Hispanic groups, businesses employing Hispanic workers, and other stakeholders who have specific expertise and/or a strong interest in enhancing workplace safety and health for Hispanic workers. The implementation team will meet to develop a plan of action. This may include the identification of priority business sector(s) employing a significant population of at risk Hispanic workers and the methods that may be most effective in achieving desired results. In addition, the team 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.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either 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 both signatories.
