Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Concluded Regional Alliances - Region III


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Pennsylvania/OSHA Consultation Program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (PA/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP) and the SMC Business Councils hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on February 21, 2003. OSHA, the PA/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP and the SMC Business Councils continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA, the PA/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP and the SMC Business Councils remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA, the PA/OSHA Consultation Program at IUP and the SMC Business Councils recognize that OSHAs State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHAs 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 partys products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular partys 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 Occupational Safety and Health State Plan Association and the association of state Consultation Projects 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.
