Participants in the Alliance Program support OSHA’s strategic goals by developing Alliance agreements and implementing project plans that emphasize:
Alliance Program participants are committed to working closely with OSHA to develop and share information with workers and employers to help prevent injuries, illnesses and fatalities in the workplace and to educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities under the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Alliances provide a forum for employers and workers to work together to resolve workplace safety and health issues. To achieve this, Alliances which include employers and employer groups (e.g., trade associations) must also include worker representatives. This is accomplished by having a union signatory or by having worker involvement in the Alliance Agreement’s development and implementation, including project workgroups.
Alliances support the Department of Labor’s strategic goals of enhancing workers’ voices and providing safe and secure workplaces. This is accomplished by the Alliance Program participants:
Alliance Program participants must possess sufficient knowledge and resources to fulfill the goals of the Alliance agreement. They must also make the products of the Alliance available to the public at no cost.
