The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer American workplaces. OSHA and ITA hereby form an Alliance to promote the safe operation and use of powered industrial trucks by providing information, guidance, and access to training resources to assist employers and employees in reducing and preventing exposure to potential hazards associated with the use of powered industrial trucks in general, and in warehouses in particular. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and ITA recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and ITA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of all parties 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 quarterly 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, Directorate of Science, Technology and Medicine and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
