OSHA’s Alliances provide 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. These Alliances have
proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance
with a party, OSHA is not endorsing any of that party’s products or services; nor does the Agency
enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular 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 three years. Either signatory may terminate it for any
reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any
time with the concurrence of all signatories.
