The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Gulf Coast Maritime Safety Association
(GCMSA) and Alabama Physical Therapy Association (ALAPTA) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed
July 24, 2004. OSHA, GCMSA, and ALAPTA continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to
achieve workplace safety. OSHA, GCMSA, and ALAPTA remain committed to cooperative and proactive
efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA, GCMSA, and ALAPTA
recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Onsite 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 OSHA, GCMSA, and ALAPTA 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.
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.
