CLOSEOUT ALLIANCE REPORT
Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the
Nebraska Safety Council
April 16, 2003 – June 3, 2005
I. Alliance Background
April 16, 2003
This Alliance establishes an agreement between parties to promote and educate Nebraska employers about the value-added to business by voluntarily implementing an effective safety and health management system. The agreement also focuses on a number of goals including:
Training and education:
10/01/2003 – 10/29/2004
II. Implementation Team Meetings
The implementation team changes upon the departure of Jerry Dubyak from the Council
in ~ December 2003. Mr. Dubyak’s replacement, James Klar, became the point of contact with the Council for this program. The Council had originally developed a series of “courses”, designed around the 19 Elements of VPP. These courses were only modestly attended and therefore Mr. Klar re-evaluated the course offerings. At the January 2004 team meeting he indicated that the Council was going to offer a re-vamped series of courses in the hopes of generating greater interest and participation.
On a quarterly basis, we check to see if the courses are being attended, the number of attendees, and how they are received.
III. Events and Products
Training and Education
IV. Upcoming Milestones
The Omaha Area Office will continue to support the training efforts of the Council as requested. The Omaha AO and the NSC will be evaluating whether or not to continue offering this series of courses, and whether a re-vamped version of training courses offered will be more successful than those originally offered.
NOTE: As of 06/03/2005 this alliance has been terminated through mutual agreement of both signatory parties.
