The OSHA and CBPP Alliance will work to provide businesses and safety professionals with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help protect employees' health and safety. The organizations will also address issues of importance to general industry and small business, such as the value of safety and health programs. The Alliance's goals include:

Training and education:
  • Deliver or arrange for the delivery of workplace safety and health courses as part of the business school curriculum through courses such as the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business' course, "Contemporary Safety/Health Issues for Business."
Outreach and communication:
  • Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding best practices or effective approaches and publicize results through outreach by CBPP and through OSHA- or CBPP-developed materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).
  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects such as addressing the value of workplace safety and health programs, especially in general industry and small business, that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
  • Develop and disseminate case studies illustrating the business value of safety and health and publicize their results.
