AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Heart Association (AHA) hereby renew the Alliance originally signed on November 20, 2003 and renewed September 8, 2006. OSHA and AHA continue to recognize the value of providing safe and healthy American workplaces. Through the Alliance renewal agreement the organizations will utilize their collective expertise to advance a culture of awareness, prevention and action while sharing best practices and technical knowledge to reduce death and disability from heart disease and stroke and address employee wellness programs in the workplace. These efforts will include a focus on providing information for individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and AHA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and AHA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
OSHA and the AHA acknowledge and agree that no ownership or license of a signatory's trademarks or copyrighted works is conveyed to the other under this Alliance.
An implementation team made up of representatives of both organizations 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. Team members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs the Directorate of Science, Technology and Medicine and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either signatory may terminate it for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both signatories.
