The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National
Safety Council's (NSC) Broward, Dade, Palm Beach and Southwest Chapters hereby renew the Alliance
signed on August 18, 2005. OSHA and the NSC continue to recognize the value of a collaborative
relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the NSC remain
committed to cooperative and proactive efforts to advance workplace safety and health. In renewing
this Alliance, OSHA and the NSC recognize that OSHA's State Plan and 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 both organizations will continue to meet to
take further action in determining working procedures, and identifying 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. Team
members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs and any
other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA Consultation Projects'
participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years from the date of signing and will automatically
be renewed annually thereafter. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of
both signatories and may terminated for any reason with 30 days written notice from either
