Initial Agreement was signed by the Area Directors from the Calumet City, Chicago North and Aurora offices. The renewal in 2007 was signed by the Regional Administrator.
Primary goals of the alliance are to develop relationships with the Hispanic community, to identify specific safety related topics and provide Spanish language safety training for employers and employees in the construction industry.

These report summaries activities since the alliance was renewed on October 3, 2007.
Alliance Activity - 10/2007 to Present
Primary activities conduced through the alliance include:
No specific outreach products have been developed through the alliance, but the PowerPoint presentations using during the initial OSHA 10 Hour Course, the Residential Roofing seminar and the materials available through the OSHA booth at the construction show continue to be available through HACIA.
Through the alliance, Spanish language safety training has been made available to members of HACIA and relationships with OSHA, HACIA, Consultation and Truman College have continued to develop. The number of individuals reached through the activities listed above is approximately 215.
In early 2008, shortly after the alliance was renewed, the Executive Director of HACIA left the organization and a new Executive Director was appointed. For the majority of 2008, the focus of HACIA's safety related outreach was primarily driven by the Harwood grant. With the expiration of this grant, a meeting is recommended with the new Executive Director to identify new opportunities for outreach through the alliance and assure these goals fit into his vision for HACIA and the alliance. It is hoped that this meeting can be scheduled for the first quarter of 2009.
