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. OSHA, Francis Tuttle Technology Center, the Oklahoma Division of Labor/Consultation and Independent Construction Contractor Associations will encourage the participation of State Plan States and OSHA On-site Consultation Projects.
