AGREEMENT ESTABLISHING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE NATIONAL CHICKEN COUNCIL
THE NATIONAL TURKEY FEDERATION
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Chicken Council (NCC) and the National Turkey Federation (NTF) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces and a culture of prevention. OSHA, NCC and NTF hereby form an Alliance to provide NCC's and NTF's members and others with information, guidance and access to training resources that will help them protect the safety and health of employees, including those who speak languages other than English. In particular, the Alliance will focus on machinery hazards and provide potential solutions to reduce injuries (e.g., amputations). In developing the Alliance, OSHA, NCC and NTF recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA, NCC and NTF will work together to achieve the following training and education goal:
An implementation team made up of representatives of all three organizations 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 Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Any signatory 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.
