The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Lake County Contractors Association (LCCA) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces within the County of Lake, State of Illinois. OSHA and LCCA, therefore, agree to renew the Alliance, signed April 12, 2006, to use their collective expertise to help advance a culture of accident prevention while sharing information, guidance, best practices, access to training resources and technical knowledge that will help protect employees' safety and health. In particular, the Alliance focuses on, but not limited to, efforts to reach members of the LCCA through outreach on safety and health issues. The outreach activity will complement OSHA's goals, as outlined in its Strategic Management Plan (SMP), of reducing occupational hazards through compliance assistance, outreach and education. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and the LCCA will continue to provide education, training and other technical resources to reduce and prevent exposures to the most commonly identified safety and health hazards in construction and general industry. In addition, both parties recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and the LCCA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
OSHA and the LCCA will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting dialogue on workplace safety and health:
OSHA's Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training, education, outreach and communication to promote a 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 product or service.
Representatives of both LCCA and OSHA will continue to meet at least quarterly to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of this Alliance.
This agreement will remain in effect for 2 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 concurrence of both signatories. Signed April 16, 2008.
