OSHA and the NFIB Alliance recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to develop safer and healthier workplaces and to protect employees' health and safety. The Alliance is working to make health and safety information, compliance assistance resources, and safety and health training available to all employers in the Columbus area and when possible to expand the training throughout Ohio. This training will focus on small and independent businesses and communicate the need for the implementation of safety and health management system programs in the workplace.

CAS Laura Ulczyinski, Julie Weis, and Dale Henderson assisted in the training in their areas. Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHOs) Scott Feil, Jorge Munoz, Aaron Priddy, Kip Reiher, and Matt Taylor made presentations during the NFIB/Ohio Safety Seminars. OSHA On Site, Keith Bullock, gave a presentation in each location where training was held. The presentations included information on machine guarding, electrical safety, hazards communication, fall protection, OSHA up-date, ask OSHA, and trenching and excavation. The seminars were held:
OSHA Columbus, Ohio Area Office Alliance with NFIB/Ohio State Chapter
On September 22, 2005, the Columbus OSHA Office signed an Alliance with the NFIB/Ohio Chapter. The Columbus OSHA Office and the NFIB/Ohio Alliance are working on a number of projects including developing an "OSHA Column" for the NFIB/Ohio State Chapter's newsletter. They are working with the NFIB's local chapters in Ohio to develop a safety and health program to present during the Council's meetings.
OSHA and the NFIB have worked together through the Alliance Program during the past year to further enhance compliance assistance materials and information that is available for small businesses. In addition, the Alliance is continuing to share information on safe workplaces.
