THE SAFETY ALLIANCE FURTHERING EDUCATIONAL
RESOURCES IN RHODE ISLAND
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Safety Safety Alliance Furthering Educational Resources in Rhode Island (SAFER) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and SAFER hereby form an Alliance to provide SAFER members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to construction hazards. OSHA and SAFER will strive to meet the needs of the Rhode Island construction industry by providing information, assistance, and training that will enable employers, employees, and trainees to successfully eliminate and reduce the hazards associated with working in the construction industry. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and SAFER recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and SAFER will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of SAFER and OSHA will meet to establish goals of the Alliance. In addition, they will meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA will encourage the Rhode Island OSHA Consultation Projects’ participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Any signatory may terminate their membership in this alliance for any reason provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of the signatories.
