|<< Back to American Council of Independent Laboratories
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and American Council of Independent Laboratories (ACIL) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and ACIL therefore agree to renew the Alliance, signed on July 29, 2003, to use their collective expertise to increase awareness of OSHA’s Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) Program for general industry and in particular small businesses. This includes increasing awareness of OSHA's requirements for product approvals by NRTLs. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and ACIL recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and ACIL will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
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.
