Through the Alliance, OSHA and Chemical Reactivity Hazards Management Alliance will work together to provide their members, customers, contacts and others involved in the manufacture, distribution, use and storage of chemicals with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect communities and employees' health and safety through better identification and management of chemical reactivity hazards (CRH). The Alliance's goals include:

Training and education
  • Jointly develop and deliver training addressing chemical reactivity hazards, to be delivered in conferences, meetings, OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers, or through distance learning.
Outreach and communication
  • Develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, including electronic assistance tools and links from OSHA's and the signatories' web sites.
  • Collaborate with other Alliances on specific issues and projects on the identification and management of chemical reactivity hazards that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on chemical reactivity hazards to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.
