Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Region II



The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the NJ State Safety Council (NJSSC) and the New Jersey Governor’s Highway Traffic Safety Policy Advisory Council (HTSPAC) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC hereby form an Alliance to provide New Jersey workers and other interested parties, such as students/youth, non-English speaking workers and senior drivers, with information, guidance and access to training resources that will help protect employee health and safety particularly, in reducing and preventing motor vehicle collisions. In developing this Alliance, OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC recognize that OSHA’s NJ Department of Labor State Plan and Consultation Programs are an integral part of this Alliance and the OSHA national effort.

OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
  • Develop safe driver training and education programs for New Jersey workers and other interested parties, such as students/youth, non-English speaking workers and senior drivers.

  • Deliver or arrange for the delivery of the OSHA 10 Plus Safety and Health Program, which will include a safe driving component, for New Jersey workers and other interested parties such as students/youth, non-English speaking workers and senior drivers.
OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
  • Develop and disseminate worker safe driving information at OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC safety conferences, meetings and events, and through print and electronic media, including links from the OSHA Region II and NJSSC Websites.

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA, NJSSC, HTSPAC and other Alliance partner’s conferences, meetings or other events such as the Building Contractors Association Annual Career Fair and NJ Cooperative Education Coordinators Association monthly meetings.

  • Share information on safe driving practices with other state OSHA offices, small business development centers and student/youth worker associations.

  • Encourage OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC members, and in particular, bi-lingual members, to present the safe driving program and related materials to small business owners, young drivers, senior drivers and non-English speaking workers.
OSHA, NJSSC and HTSPAC will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
  • Raise others’ awareness of and demonstrate their own commitment to safe driving whenever OSHA, NJSSC and HSTPAC staff address groups such as high school students, senior drivers and others.

  • Develop and disseminate case studies and success stories illustrating the business and social value of driver safety and publicize their results in OSHA, and NJSSC newsletters and other media such as local newspapers.

  • Convene or participate in forums, roundtable discussions or meetings on safe driving issues to help forge innovative solutions.
OSHA’s Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training and education, outreach and communication and promoting a national dialogue on workplace safety and health. These Alliances have proven 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 product or services.

An implementation team made up of representatives of all signing organizations will meet to develop a plan of action, determine procedures, and identify the roles and responsibilities of the participants. In addition, they will meet 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. Any signatory may terminate from the Alliance for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with concurrence of all signatories.
