OSHA and AIHA are committed to providing AIHA members, safety and health professionals, and the public with information and 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 the health and safety of youth and temporary workers; workplace hazards in emerging industries; disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; opioids and the workplace; and other topics, as appropriate. Alliance goals include:

Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives
  • Share information on OSHA's National Initiatives (e.g., Emphasis Programs, Regulatory Agenda, Outreach), and opportunities to participate in initiatives and the rulemaking process.
  • Share information on occupational safety and health laws and standards, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.
  • Promote the use of safety and health programs in workplaces through continued collaboration on the Safe + Sound Campaign for Safety and Health Programs.
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA or AIHA conferences, meetings, and other events, such as the American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo.
  • 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 and the Alliance Program Forum, to help forge innovative solutions for workplaces or to provide input on safety and health issues.
  • Collaborate with other Alliance Program participants on specific issues and projects that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
  • Enhance communication between AIHA, OSHA, and other federal and state entities to promote the dissemination of tools and resources related to the health and safety of young and temporary workers; workplace hazards in emerging industries; disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; opioids and the workplace; and other topics, as appropriate.
  • Encourage AIHA Local Sections to build relationships with OSHA's Regional and Area offices to address workplace health and safety issues.
