Altec - Alliance Renewal Agreement - December 18, 2007
AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
ALTEC INDUSTRIES, INC.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Altec Industries, Inc. recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and Altec hereby renew the Alliance agreement originally signed on November 22, 2005 to provide information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help protect employees' health and safety, including non-English or limited English speaking workers. The Alliance will continue to address the safe operation of cranes, digger derricks, and insulated and non-insulated aerial devices, including tree care devices, and focus on industry hazards such as falls and electrocutions. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and Altec recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
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 made up of representatives of both organizations will meet to develop a plan of action, determine working procedures, and identify the roles and responsibilities of the participants. In addition, they will meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. Team members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA On-site 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.
