AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE NATIONAL SHOOTING SPORTS FOUNDATION, INC.
THE SPORTING ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS' INSTITUTE, INC.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), Inc., through its shooting range development division, the National Association of Shooting Ranges, and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute, Inc. (SAAMI) hereby renew the Alliance agreement originally signed on August 5, 2002 and renewed on May 19, 2005. OSHA, NSSF and SAAMI continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces.
OSHA, NSSF and SAAMI will focus on providing shooting range operators and developers and others, including small businesses, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety. In particular, the Alliance will address reducing and preventing exposure to airborne lead and noise. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA, NSSF and SAAMI recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Program partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA, NSSF and SAAMI will work together to achieve the following training and education goal:
An implementation team made up of representatives of all organizations in the Alliance 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 three times per year 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 and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA On-site Consultation Programs' participation on the team.
This agreement 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.
