Through the OSHA and AIHA Alliance, both organizations are committed to providing AIHA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will address construction, general industry, shipyard employment, and oil and gas issues. The Alliances' goals include:

Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives
  • To share information on OSHA's National Emphasis Programs, Regulatory Agenda, and opportunities to participate in the rulemaking process through AIHA's Web site and publications.
  • To convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on construction and general industry safety issues, such as the OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable, to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
Outreach and communication
  • To develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to develop ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA's and the AIHA's Web sites) to employers and workers in the industry.
  • To speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or AIHA's conferences, local meetings, such as the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo.
  • To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program, including support for North American Occupational Safety and Health Week.
