AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDEPENDENT BUSINESS
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer, drug-free and more healthful American workplaces and, therefore, renew the Alliance signed on June 14, 2004. Through the Alliance, OSHA and NFIB will continue to provide NFIB's members and others with health and safety information and compliance assistance resources that are available to all employers, especially small and independent businesses, and communicate the need for the implementation of safety and health management system programs in the workplace. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and NFIB recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and NFIB will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of both 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 Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either 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 both signatories.
