Alliances: A Brief History
In March 2002, OSHA launched its newest cooperative program, the Alliance Program. This cooperative program enables organizations committed to safety and health to collaborate with OSHA to prevent injuries, illnesses and fatalities in the workplace.
OSHA and Alliance participants work together to reach out to, educate, and lead the nation’s employers and their employees in advancing workplace safety and health.
Prior to the Alliance program, OSHA’s cooperative programs focused on the agency working collaboratively with worksites, through the VPP and SHARP programs and groups of employers, employees and employee representatives through the Strategic Partnership Program.
The Alliance Program extends OSHA’s reach to universities, trade organizations, professional associations, labor organizations and government agencies.
Through this program, organizations can:
- Build trusting, cooperative relationships with the Agency.
- Network with others committed to workplace safety and health.
- Leverage resources to maximize worker safety and health protection.
