The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Jacksonville Area Offices and the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC) Florida East Coast Chapter, the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC) Central Florida Chapter, the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC) Florida Gulf Coast Chapter, the Associated Builders and Contractors of Florida (ABC) North Florida Coast Chapter, the Associated General Contractors of American (AGC) South Florida Chapter, the Associated General Contractors of American (AGC) Florida East Coast Chapter, the Associated General Contractors of American (AGC) Greater Florida Chapter, the Construction Association of South Florida (CASF), the Florida Crane Owners' Council, Inc. (FCOC), the Florida Transportation Builders' Association (FTBA), and Crane Tech, LLC (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, and renewed April 13, 2011, 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.

Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives

The Participants intend to work together to achieve the following goal related to raising awareness of OSHA's rulemaking and enforcement initiatives:

  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on building crane issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.

Training and Education

The Participants intend to work together to achieve the following training and education goals:

  • To develop effective training and education programs for crane owners, crane operators, riggers and other construction workers directly or potentially exposed to cranes regarding building crane safety, and to communicate such information to constituent employers and workers.

  • To deliver or arrange for the delivery of training focused on crane safety courses.

Outreach and Communication

The Participants intend to work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goal

  • To developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to develop ways of communicating such information (e.g., print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools, and OSHA's and the Florida Crane Safety Alliance members' Web sites) to employers and workers in the construction industry.

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at the Florida Crane Safety Alliance members' conferences, annual meetings, local meetings, or other events.

  • To share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding the Florida Crane Safety Alliance members' good practices or effective approaches through training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures developed by the participants.

  • To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on building crane safety that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.

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.
