The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Galesburg Area Safety, Health and Environment Network (GASHEN) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and GASHEN hereby form an Alliance to provide participants and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to ergonomics, electrical, emergency action, machine guarding and lockout hazards and addressing recordkeeping requirements. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and GASHEN recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and GASHEN will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
OSHA and GASHEN will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
OSHA and GASHEN will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
The Alliance provides 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. The Alliance will be a valuable tool for both OSHA and GASHEN members. By entering into the Alliance, neither GASHEN nor OSHA endorses any of each other’s products or services; nor does either party enter into the Alliance for the purpose of promoting the other party’s products or services.
An implementation team made up of representatives of both organizations will meet to develop a plan of action, determine working procedures, and identify 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.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either party may terminate it for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days advanced written notice. This agreement may be modified in writing at any time with the concurrence of both parties.
