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


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), represented by its area offices in Georgia, the Georgia Institute of Technology, Safety Health and Environmental Division (Georgia Tech), and the Georgia Health Care Association (GHCA) hereby renew the Alliance agreement signed on October 21, 2003. OSHA, Georgia Tech and the GHCA continue to recognize the value of collaborative efforts to achieve workplace safety. OSHA, Georgia Tech and the GHCA remain committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA, Georgia Tech and the GHCA recognize that OSHAs State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHAs 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 partys products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular partys 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. OSHAs 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.
