Lauderdale, Tampa and Jacksonville Area Offices; the Associated Builders and Contractors’ (ABC) Florida East Coast, Central Florida, Florida Gulf Coast Chapters, Florida First Coast, and North Florida Chapters; the Associated General Contractors of American (AGC) South Florida, Florida East Coast, and Greater Florida Chapters; the Construction Association of South Florida (CASF); the Florida Crane Owners’ Council, Inc. (FCOC); the Florida Transportation Builders' Association (FTBA); (hereafter referred to as the Florida Crane Safety Alliance) continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and the Florida Crane Safety hereby renew the Alliance signed February 12, 2009, with a continued emphasis on crane and rigging safety in the construction industry. Specifically, OSHA and the members of the Florida Crane Safety Alliance are committed to providing employers and employees in the construction industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to focus on reducing and preventing exposure to building crane hazards and improving building crane safety. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and members of the Florida Crane Safety Alliance recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and On-site 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 raising awareness of OSHA’s rulemaking and enforcement initiatives, training and education, and outreach and communication. 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 or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party’s products or services.
An implementation team made up of representatives of each organization 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 team members will include representatives of the Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Jacksonville Area Offices and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States’ and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects’ participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two year. 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 written concurrence of all of the signatories.
Signed this 12th day of May, 2011.
