AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE AMERICAN INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE ASSOCIATION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and AIHA hereby renew their Alliance, originally signed October 10, 2002, and renewed April 23, 2004, to provide AIHA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, particularly in addressing ergonomic and hazard communication issues. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and AIHA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and AIHA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
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 and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA 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.
