AGREEMENT ESTABLISHING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE BRICK INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Brick Industry Association (BIA) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and BIA thereby form an Alliance to provide BIA's members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, particularly in reducing ergonomics injuries, and preventing exposure to hazardous levels of silica. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and BIA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and BIA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team comprised 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 the signatory gives 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both the signatories.
