AGREEMENT ESTABLISHING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR’S
FT. LAUDERDALE, JACKSONVILLE AND TAMPA AREA OFFICES
ASSOCIATED BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS OF FLORIDA,
SOUTH FLORIDA - ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS OF AMERICA, CONSTRUCTION ASSOCIATION OF FLORIDA,
FLORIDA CRANE OWNERS’ COUNCIL, INC,
ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS - EAST COAST CHAPTER
ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS OF GREATER FLORIDA
The Associated General Contractors of Greater Florida join with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC), South Florida Associated General Contractors of American (AGC), Construction Association of South Florida (CASF), and the Florida Crane Owners’ Council, Inc. (FCOC), (hereafter referred to as the Florida Crane Safety Alliance) in recognizing the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. The AGC–East Coast Chapter and the AGC of Greater Florida therefore agree to join the Florida Crane Safety Alliance to use their collective expertise to help protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to building crane accidents and improving building crane safety. The AGC–East Coast Chapter and the AGC of Greater Florida agree to all of the provisions of the original Alliance signed by OSHA, ABC of Florida, South Florida AGC, CASF, and the FCOC on February 12, 2009. In amending this agreement all participants recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and 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.
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.
