Title: The Alliance Program
[Includes images of the Alliance and OSHA logos]
- Established by OSHA's National, Regional, Area Offices
- Formed with a variety of organizations, including associations, unions,
consulates, community and faith-based groups, educational institutions,
and government agencies
- Develop and disseminate compliance assistance products
- Educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities
- Do not exempt participants from OSHA inspections
The Alliance Program was launched in 2002 to reach workers and employers that were not being reached by OSHA's other cooperative programs.
Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. OSHA and the groups work together to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, share information with workers and employers, and educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities.
Alliance agreements do not include an enforcement component, such as exemption from general scheduled inspections or monitoring visits. Alliance agreements are not worksite-based – they generally focus on entire industries or hazards within the industries.
