During the three-year alliance, the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA), the state of Illinois On-Site Safety and Health
Consultation Service, the Life Services Network and the Life Services Network
Trust will provide nursing homes in the state of Illinois with information,
guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect
employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure
to safety and health hazards found in nursing homes.
The alliance will also promote and encourage participation in OSHA's cooperative
programs. These include compliance assistance, safety and health consultation
programs, the Voluntary Protection Programs and the Safety and Health
Achievement Recognition Program.
