The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), represented by the Atlanta-East, Atlanta-West and Savannah, GA, Area Offices, Georgia Local Section - American Industrial Hygiene Association (GLS-AIHA), the Georgia Chapter -  American Society of Safety Engineers (GA-ASSE), the Georgia Tech Research Institute's Occupational Safety and Health Division (Georgia Tech), Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC (Brasfield & Gorrie), the RockTenn Company (RockTenn), HDS Consulting, the Georgia Concerned Beauty Professionals (GACBP), and the U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division (WHD) (hereafter referred to as the Georgia Youth Alliance) hereby renew the Alliance signed June 19, 2006 and renewed December 21, 2011, with a continued emphasis on youth workers.  Specifically, the Georgia Youth Alliance is committed to providing members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of youth worker's and educators in career/technical education programs throughout Georgia.  Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to address the exposure of youth workers to prevalent hazards in the 1construction and 2general industries and provide them with an understanding of the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). 3Contributors to the Alliance will also include the Construction Education Foundation of Georgia (CEFGA), the Georgia Department of Education (GA DOE).  In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the Georgia Youth Alliance recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

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 career-technical education students and educators regarding safety and health hazards in the workplace regarding prevalent hazards in the construction and general industries, and to communicate such information to career-technical students, educators and administrators.
  • To deliver or arrange for the delivery of safety and health training courses focusing on general industry and the construction industry courses.

Outreach and Communication

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

  • To develop 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 Georgia Youth Alliance member's Web sites) to employers and workers in the industry.
  • To speak, exhibit, or appear at career/technical education sponsored events, such as conferences, professional development workshops, local meetings, or other events related to protecting the safety and health of youth workers in Georgia.
  • To share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding the Georgia Youth Alliance good practices or effective approaches through training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum) developed by the participants.
  • To work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects regarding the safety and health of youth workers 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 shareinformation on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. OSHA team members will include representatives of the Atlanta-East, Atlanta-West and Savannah, GA, Area Offices, as well as the Atlanta Regional Office 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-years. 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 signatories.

Signed this 22nd day of September, 2014.
