OSHA and the Health Physics Society (HPS)
as of February 20, 2006
On February 20, 2004, OSHA and the Health Physics Society (HPS) formed an Alliance to provide HPS members and others with information, guidance and access to training resources to protect employees' health and safety. The Alliance focused on enhancing workplace health and safety and assisting employers in developing a preventive focus for radiological safety and health issues in workplace environments, especially related to emergency preparedness.
Due to the change in HPS's priorities and its focus on using the society's resources to address other issues for its members, there was limited activity to develop programs and products to meet the goals of the Alliance. As a result, HPS concluded the Alliance as of February 20, 2006. However, OSHA and HPS will continue to work together through other avenues to develop and share information on radiological safety and heath issues.
The following successes resulted from the organizations' working together to meet the Alliance's goals:
