The OSHA and NTSP Alliance will focus on providing NTSP members and others in the telecommunications industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, by addressing ergonomic issues. The Alliance's goals include:
Outreach and communication goals
- Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards related to ergonomics and provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g. print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and NTSP's websites) to employers and employees in the industry.
- Share information addressing ergonomics among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding NTSP's best practices or effective approaches and publicize the results through outreach by NTSP and OSHA and through OSHA- or NTSP-developed materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
- Develop and disseminate case studies illustrating the business value of addressing ergonomic issues and publicize their results.
