Through the Alliance, OSHA and the ACC will work together to provide OSHA, the ACC's members and Responsible Care partners, and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, particularly through matters of mutual interest in promoting high levels of safety and health performance and improved dialogue through the OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs and ACC's Responsible Care Initiative. The Alliance's goals include:
Training and education
- Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop training and education programs for participants in Responsible Care and VPP, regarding the similarities and differences in the two programs and to provide expertise in communicating such information to individuals interested in applying for either program.
Outreach and communication
- Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information which will continue to promote the goals of this Alliance.
- Share information among OSHA personnel, ACC members and Responsible Care Partners, and other industry safety and health professionals regarding VPP and ACC's Responsible Care best practices.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
- Develop means to publicize the results achieved by companies that are joint participants in Responsible Care and VPP.
