AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
ALLENTOWN AREA OFFICE
OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
LEHIGH CAREER AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTE
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Lehigh Career and Technical Institute (LCTI) hereby renew their Alliance signed on November 17, 2005 and renewed on March 27, 2008. This renewal agreement fully incorporates all of the terms of the November 17, 2005 agreement and the renewal agreement, which are continuing in nature.
OSHA and LCTI continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces. OSHA and LCTI remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health especially by continuing to provide LCTI members, including staff and students, and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers. Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to address various hazards including but not limited to: respiratory hazards, life safety issues, machine guarding, construction related hazards, food processing/preparation, healthcare, material logistics and landscaping. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and LCTI recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
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 proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party’s products or services.
An implementation team made up of representatives of each organization will continue to 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. OSHA team members will include representatives of the Allentown Area OSHA Office. OSHA will encourage State Plan States’ and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects’ participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either 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 written concurrence of both signatories.
