OSHA and Project BEST hereby form an Alliance to provide Project BEST 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 OSHA's four focus hazards: falls, electrical, struck-by and caught-in. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and Project BEST recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and Project BEST will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
OSHA and Project BEST will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
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.
An implementation team made up of representatives of both 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. OSHA will encourage
State Plan States' and OSHA Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. The signatories 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.
