  1. Alliance Background

    Since the last report the name of the organization has changed from Wisconsin Council on Safety to Wisconsin Safety Council to better align itself with it's national affiliation the National Safety Council

    Date Signed

    This alliance was originally signed on August 28, 2005 and re-signed in August 2008. The signatories have decided not to extend the alliance, so this serves as the termination report.

    Alliance Overview

  3. Activities and Products

    Evaluation Period

    This evaluation covers the period from November 19, 2010 to July 12, 2011.

    Alliance Activity

    Due to a change in leadership at the Wisconsin Safety Council many of its conferences and training programs were suspended in the reporting period. The result is that while the three signatories maintain a strong working relationship, the OSHA offices experienced a dramatic decline in their WSC-associated outreach for FY 11. We have met with the director and made a commitment to maintain the same levels of activity that we had before the change in FY 2012 and are already making plans to do so.

    Wisconsin Safety Council Annual Conference - May 16, 17 and 18, 2011 - All five compliance assistance specialists manned the booth at the conference and various OSHA staffers gave presentations on a variety of safety and health/OSHA policy and procedure topics.
