AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE DOW CHEMICAL COMPANY
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and Dow hereby renew their Alliance originally signed on January 13, 2003 and renewed on May 26, 2004, and May 12, 2006 to further enhance a culture of prevention while sharing proven practices and technical knowledge in the areas of, but not limited to, process safety management, safety and health management systems, emergency preparedness, and employee wellness programs. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and Dow recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and Dow 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 On-site 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.
