Through the Alliance, the organizations will identify areas of emphasis for Alliance awareness, outreach, and communication activities. The Alliance will also explore and implement selected options to evaluate the effectiveness of the Alliance and measure the impact of its overall effort on improving workplace safety for employers and workers. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the ASSP recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort, and that information about the products and activities of the Alliance may be shared with these partners for the advancement of common goals. The Alliance's goals include:
Outreach and Communication
The Participants intend to work together to achieve the following outreach and communication objectives:
- To share information on OSHA's National Emphasis Programs, National Outreach Campaigns, Regulatory Agenda, occupational safety and health laws and standards, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.
- To speak, exhibit, appear, or participate in OSHA or ASSP forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on general industry, construction safety, temporary workers, or other areas of emphasis identified by the Alliance participants. Examples include: continued collaboration on ASSP's Professional Development Conference and the ASSP/AIHA's joint chapter meeting.
- To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects such as construction safety, temporary worker protection, and any other issues that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program. For example: ASSP participation in the OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable.
