Back to Region IV
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Tampa Area Office and the Northeast Florida Safety Council (NEFSC) continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and the NEFSC hereby renew the Alliance signed June 26, 2003 and renewed July 22, 2005, with a continued emphasis on reducing and preventing exposure to the hazards associated with disasters and emergency preparedness. Specifically, both organizations are committed to providing the NEFSC members and others 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, both organizations will continue to place additional emphasis on the development of effective safety and health tools (i.e., Safety and Health Management Systems, Work Zones, and other Fleet Safety Programs). In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the NEFSC 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.
