AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
DEPARTMENT OF PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND CONTINUED EDUCATION OF THE PROFESSIONAL COLLEGE OF ENGINEERS AND
LAND SURVEYORS OF PUERTO RICO
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Department of Professional Development and Continued Education of the Professional College of Engineers and Land Surveyors of Puerto Rico (CIAPR, for its Spanish acronym) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the CIAPR therefore agree to renew the Alliance, signed on September 9, 2004 and first renewed on August 24, 2006, to provide the CIAPR 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 hazards in the construction industry, such as falls, electrical, struck by and caught in between. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and CIAPR recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and CIAPR will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of the 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 three times per year 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. Any signatory 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 all signatories.
