    • Provide participants with the opportunity to:
      • Share specific topic-related information about Alliance-related activities and successes

    • Roundtable topics have included:

  • Since the inception of the Alliance Program, OSHA has hosted meetings to bring together Alliance Program participants to network, identify opportunities for collaboration to develop programs and materials, and showcase their products and activities. OSHA recognized that the Alliance Program participants were interested in a number of the same topics and issues and their expertise could be leveraged by bringing them together to discuss these topics and develop related compliance assistance tools and resources. As a result, OSHA began scheduling and holding Alliance Program Roundtable meetings.

    Construction Roundtable

    OSHA formed the OSHA Alliance Program Construction Roundtable in 2004 to provide participants with the opportunity to share construction-related information about Alliance-related activities and successes, develop products, and network with others in the Program.
