|<< Back to Concluded Regional Alliances - Region VI
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry (API), part of the American Chemistry Council, recognize the value of establishing a cooperative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the API hereby form an Alliance to provide the API members and others in the spray-on truck bed liner industry with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to diisocyanates during the application of spray-on truck bed liners. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and the API recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and API will work together to achieve the following training and education goal:
OSHA and API will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national 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 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 two 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 both signatories.
