    Alliance Overview:

    OSHA and NFIB/Ohio renewed an Alliance providing NFIB/Ohio members with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to hazards in machine guarding, electrical, lockout/tagout and to address written safety and health program issues. This Alliance will also had a special emphasis on providing safety and health awareness training and information to young workers in small businesses.

  3. Activities and Products

    Evaluation Period

    August 5, 2008 through August 5, 2009

    Alliance Activity

    The Alliance did not have any further implementation team meetings. Jim Wirth dropped out of implementation team and subsequent meetings and planned training sessions were cancelled. Therefore, no goals were met, and there are no plans for further work together on this Alliance.

    Alliance Products

    There were no products produced after the Alliance was renewed in 2008.

  4. Results

    The Alliance did not produce any results after the renewal, and there were no further efforts to continue activities.

    Type of Activity (Conference, Training, Print and Electronic Distribution, etc.) Number of Individuals Reached or Trained
    N/A 0
    Total 0

    The primary issue that affected this Alliance was the discontinuation of activity by the primary implementation team member who initiated the original Alliance. After he dropped out, there was no sustained interest in continuing activities.

  5. Upcoming Milestones:

    This Alliance will not be renewed.
