AGREEMENT RENEWING THE ALLIANCE
BETWEEN
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
AND
THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF SHOOTING RANGES
AND
THE SPORTING ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS' INSTITUTE, INC.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Association of Shooting Ranges (NASR) and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute, Inc. (SAAMI) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on August 5, 2002. OSHA, NASR, SAAMI will continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. The organizations will provide member and non-member shooting ranges with information and guidance that will help them enhance their employee safety programs, including educating and informing their employees on methods and procedures to minimize airborne pollutants and noise exposure in the work environment. Further, OSHA, NASR, and SAAMI will provide information and guidance to shooting range operators and developers in the control of hazards and prevention of exposure in their facilities. OSHA and NASR-SAAMI recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHA's Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training and education, outreach and communication and promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health. These Alliances have proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing any of that party's products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular party's products or services.

In addition, the implementation team will continue to meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA will afford the opportunity for representatives of the Occupational Safety and Health State Plan Association and the Association of state Consultation Projects to participate as well.

This renewal will remain in effect for two years. The signatories 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 all signatories.
