|AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF SAFETY ENGINEERS
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces and therefore renew the Alliance originally signed on December 4, 2002 and renewed June 8, 2004. Through the Alliance, OSHA and ASSE will provide ASSE's members and others, including small businesses, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, including non-English or limited English speaking and youth workers. In particular, the Alliance will continue to focus on addressing ergonomic and motor vehicle safety issues and promoting the annual North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and ASSE recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and ASSE 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.
