Through the OSHA and GCCA Alliance, the organizations are committed to reducing injuries, illnesses, and fatalities, and supporting OSHA’s priority initiatives. Specifically, both organizations are committed to providing OSHA personnel, GGCA members and the public with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers, and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will work to reduce and prevent exposure to hazards related to chemical releases from ammonia refrigeration systems, and improve the Process Safety Management (PSM) programs for these systems.

Raising Awareness: Outreach and Communications
  • Share information on OSHA’s National Initiatives (Emphasis Programs, Regulatory Agenda, Outreach), and opportunities to participate in initiatives and the rulemaking process.
  • Share information on occupational safety and health laws and standards, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.
  • Develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards related to ammonia refrigeration and communicate such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA and the GCCA websites) to employer and workers in the industry.
  • Develop information on emergency preparedness and response, and communicate such information (e.g., via print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA and the GCCA websites) to employers and workers in the industry
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA and GCCA conferences, meetings, or other events.
  • Convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on ammonia safety to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues. Examples include the Global Cold Chain Expo and the Cold Chain Policy Forum.
  • Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding ammonia system safety good practices or effective approaches through training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).
