Alliance Overview and Goals
The OSHA and ACC Alliance focuses on providing ACC members, occupational physicians, stakeholders, and others within the polyurethanes value chain with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers. ACC will indicate methods for reducing and preventing exposure to aliphatic and aromatic diisocyanates (MDI, TDI, HDI, HMDI, and IPDI), and clarifying a better understanding of the health issues, routes of exposure, and medical surveillance/clinical evaluation techniques related to Diisocyanates.
Implementation Team Meeting
In addition to the formal meeting, the Alliance coordinators from both groups maintained regular contact throughout the reporting period to monitor the Alliance's progress and results.
Results of Alliance Activities in Support of Agreement Goals
Dissemination: Alliance Program participant shared information on agency-developed or OSHA Alliance Program-developed tools and resources, OSHA standards/rulemakings, enforcement, and outreach campaigns.
