Through the OSHA and NSC Alliance, both organizations are committed to providing NSC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to address motor vehicle safety, construction safety, temporary and contract workers, and the importance of establishing an injury and illness prevention program. The Alliance will also support and promote NSC's "Journey to Safety Excellence" (JSE) campaign, a workplace advocacy initiative focusing on continuous improvement to help make more workplaces safe across the country. The campaign offers free resources to employers including benchmarking tools, guides on a variety of safety and health topics and a forum to connect with other safety professionals.

Raising awareness of OSHA's rulemaking and enforcement initiatives
  • Share information on OSHA's National Emphasis Programs, Regulatory Agenda, and opportunities to participate in the rulemaking process through the NSC Web site and NSC publications, such as OSHA Up to Date and Membership News Alert, and targeted communications to selected NSC Divisions whose activities may revolve around specific hazards, industry segments, or other topics.
  • Convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on construction safety issues, transportation safety issues, temporary and contract workers, or best practices in injury and illness prevention programs, such as the OSHA Construction Roundtable, to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
  • Encourage worker participation in workplace safety and health by developing a sample policy for employers focused on encouraging worker engagement in hazard identification and developing a best practices document for training and engaging workers on hazard identification and control.
Outreach and communication
  • Develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, as well as develop ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, OSHA's and NSC's Web sites, and NSC's Divisions) to employers and workers in construction and general industry.
  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or NSC's conferences and local meetings, or other events, such as the annual NSC Congress & Exposition.
  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on construction or general industry safety that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
