(signed September 19, 2007; renewed October 12, 2012)


Through the OSHA and Lamar Outdoor Advertising Alliance, both organizations are committed to providing the general public and others 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 continue to support OSHA's safety and health initiatives. The Alliances' goals include:

Raising awareness of OSHA's rulemaking and enforcement initiatives:

  • To share information on occupational safety and health laws and standards, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers.

Outreach and communication:

  • To share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding Lamar's good practices or effective approaches through training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum) developed by the participants.

  • To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
