AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
BETWEEN
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
AND
THE NATIONAL LUMBER AND BUILDING MATERIAL DEALERS ASSOCIATION

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) hereby renew the Alliance signed on July 28, 2003. OSHA and NLBMDA continue to recognize the value of providing safe and healthy workplaces in the retail lumber and building materials industry. Both groups are committed to working together and networking with interested parties to increase overall safety awareness while specifically addressing recordkeeping issues and reducing or preventing forklift accidents and lifting strains in the lumber and building materials industry. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and NLBMDA recognize that OSHAs State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHAs 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 a 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 partys products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular partys products or services.

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. 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.
