OSHA and AAOHN will work together to provide AAOHN members and others, including large and small businesses with information, guidance, and access to training resources particularly in addressing workplace hazard preparedness and security issues, such as workplace violence, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), bloodborne pathogens (BBP) and personal protective equipment (PPE). The goals of the Alliance include:

Outreach and communication
  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g. print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and the AAOHN's Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or AAOHN's conferences, local meetings, or other events such as the annual AAOHN Symposium and Expo.
  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects including workplace hazard preparedness and security issues, such as workplace violence, MSDs, BBP and PPE, in the workplace that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on healthcare issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
