RENEWAL AGREEMENT ESTABLISHING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
PENNSYLVANIA AREA OFFICES
PENNSYLVANIA ASSOCIATION OF OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH NURSES
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Pennsylvania Association of Occupational Health Nurses (PAAOHN) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on June 7, 2007. This renewal agreement fully incorporates all of the goals of the June 7, 2007 agreement, which are continuing in nature.
OSHA and PAAOHN continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA and PAAOHN remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and PAAOHN recognize that OSHA's 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 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.
In addition, the implementation team will continue to meet on a regular schedule to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA will afford the opportunity for representatives of the state On-site Consultation Project to participate as well. This agreement will remain in effect for two years from the date of signing. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both signatories and may be terminated for any reason with 30 days written notice from either signatory.
