Through the OSHA and ASSE Alliance, the organizations will provide ASSE members and others, including the public sector, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers. In particular, the Alliance will continue to address non-English or limited English-speaking workers, motor vehicle safety, and promoting the annual North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week. The Alliance's 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.
To convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on reducing and preventing exposures to health and physical hazards 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 ASSE's Web sites) to employers and workers in the industry.
To speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or ASSE's conferences, local meetings, or other events such as ASSE's annual Professional Development Conference.
To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on reducing and preventing exposures to health and physical hazards that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
To encourage ASSE's chapters to build relationships with OSHA's Regional and Area Offices to address health and safety issues.
