In a cooperative effort to strive to meet the challenges of fostering safe and healthful worksites, the OSHA Pittsburgh Area Office, the Pennsylvania/OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) and the SMC Business Councils agree to establish an alliance to promote safe and healthful working conditions for all affected parties.
The OSHA Pittsburgh Area Office, the Pennsylvania/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP and the SMC Business Councils all recognize the value that safety and health management systems add to a worksite, and the impact of using a cooperative approach between OSHA, management, and labor. In addition to this recognition, the OSHA Pittsburgh Area Office, the Pennsylvania/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP and the SMC Business Councils agree to foster a relationship promoting OSHA compliance and industry best safety practices (as jointly determined by OSHA and the SMC Business Councils).
All parties will work together to affect the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of the organizations in this agreement will meet at least quarterly to facilitate and achieve the goals of the alliance. The implementation team will determine Alliance procedures, identify roles and responsibilities of the participants, and meet annually to discuss the effectiveness of the agreement. OSHA's representatives will include the Compliance Assistance Specialist, the Area Director, and the Pennsylvania/OSHA Consultation Program Project Manager. Additional team members may be brought in as needed to assist with technical matters or special projects.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years upon signing. 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.
