The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Labor-Management Construction Safety Alliance (CSA—membership list attached), recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and CSA, hereby form an Alliance to provide construction industry employers and employees with information, guidance, and access to educational resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to hazards in the construction industry such as electrical, falls, struck-by, caught-in-between, excavation, confined spaces, scaffolds, falls, and crane hazards.
OSHA and CSA will work together to achieve the following educational goals:
OSHA and CSA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
OSHA and CSA will work together to achieve the following goal related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
OSHA’s Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as education, outreach, and communication and promoting a national dialogue on workplace safety and health. These Alliances have proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing any of that party’s products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular party’s products or services.
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 quarterly to
track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years and signatories may terminate it for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of the signatories.
1 None of the activities addressed in this Alliance were paid for by OSHA under the Susan Harwood grant.
