Commercial Builders Council – Florida Home Builders Association (CBC-FHBA) joins
with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Associated
Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC), South Florida Associated General
Contractors of American (South Florida AGC), Construction Association of South
Florida (CASF), and the Florida Crane Owners’ Council, Inc. (FCOC), Associated
General Contractors of American (AGC) East Coast Chapter, Associated General
Contractors (AGC) of Greater Florida and the Florida Transportation Builders'
Association (FTBA) (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 CBC-FHBA therefore agrees 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
CBC-FHBA agrees to all of the provisions of the original Florida Crane Safety
Alliance signed 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.
