The U.S. Department of Labor’s, Wage and Hour Division (WHD) represented by the Georgia District Office join the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), represented by the Atlanta-East, Atlanta-West and Savannah, GA, Area Offices, Georgia Local Section - American Industrial Hygiene Association (GLS-AIHA), the Georgia Chapter - American Society of Safety Engineers (GA-ASSE), the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), the Georgia Department of Education (GA DOE), the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s Occupational Safety and Health Division (Georgia Tech), and the Southeast Center for Young Worker Safety and Health (hereafter referred to as the Georgia Youth Alliance) in recognizing the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to advance safety and more healthful American workplaces. The WHD - Georgia District Office therefore agrees to join the Georgia Youth Alliance to use their collective expertise to help protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in the reduction and prevention of struck by and work zone hazards. The WHD - Georgia District Office agrees to all of the provisions of the original Alliance signed on June 19, 2006. In amending this agreement all participants recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and 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 raising awareness of OSHA’s rulemaking and enforcement initiatives, training and education, and outreach and communication. 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 or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party’s products or services.
An implementation team made up of representatives of each organization 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. OSHA team members will include representatives of the Atlanta-East, Atlanta-West and Savannah, GA, Area Offices and the Atlanta Regional Office and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States’ and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects’ participation on the team.
Signed this 17th day of November, 2011.
