    Evaluation Period.

    This report covers the period of January 26, 2007 through September 4, 2008.

    Alliance Activity.

    The intention of this second year of the alliance was to develop an online safety and health training program for laboratories, especially those covered by 1910.1450. Shortly after the decision was made to pursue this topic the MATC implementation team member in charge of that project had a change in her job duties. The change resulted in the incorporation of security duties to her EHS position which was quite time consuming. She informed the OSHA team that it was unlikely that she would complete the project in the discussed timeframes.

    Shortly after the conversation about her changes in job duties the MATC contact learned that she would be leaving her job at MATC for family reasons; she was leaving the state entirely. Although she made a good faith effort to complete the online training, she did not have the time to do so. As she was the only MATC implementation team member associated with the alliance, the project was not completed.

  4. Results

    It is the recommendation of the Madison OSHA team that this alliance not be renewed.
