Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Region IV



The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Electric Power Associations of Mississippi (EPA of MS) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on May 23, 2003. OSHA and the EPA of MS continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA and the EPA of MS remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the EPA of MS recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHA's Alliance 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.

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's 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 the signing and will automatically be renewed annually thereafter. 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.
