March 5, 2009
OSHA, the American Society of Safety Engineers Pensacola Chapter, Inc., the
Sacred Heart Health Systems, Inc. Employee Assistance Professional Association
Big Bend Chapter, the Northwest Florida Association of Occupational Health
Nurses, Inc., the Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor, the University
of South Florida Consultation Program, and EAP Lifestyle Management, LLC
established an Alliance to provide workers from all industries with information,
guidance, and access to training resources that will help them to protect
employees' health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure
to workplace violence issues.
Implementation Team Membership:
Members consist of the organizations that are cited above.
Same as above
March 5, 2009 through July 22, 2010
It should be noted that an assessment of this Alliance was performed on
September 15, 2009, and was shared with the Regional Office.
Implementation Team Meetings:
The Jacksonville OSHA Area Office lost its Compliance Assistance Specialist (CAS)
early in FY2010, and the position is currently vacant. Due this loss the OSHA
Area Office has not been able to fully support all of the Alliance activities.
However, workplace violence is viewed as an area of growing concern and we
believe that this effort may be beneficial in addressing future concerns in this
area. The Alliance participants conducted implementation team meetings on the
following dates - March 5, 2009 (signing ceremony), October 8, 2009, December 9,
2009, and February 10, 2010.
