AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Safety Council (NSC) hereby recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces and renew the Alliance signed on September 9, 2003 and renewed on September 21, 2005. Through the Alliance, the organizations are working to improve health and safety in the general and construction industries and provide the nation's employers and employees, including small businesses and Hispanic and youth workers, with information, guidance, and access to training resources. In particular, the Alliance will focus on promoting motor vehicle safety and drug-free workplaces and encouraging first aid, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training in the workplace. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and NSC recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and NSC 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 On-site 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. The agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both signatories.
