I. Alliance Background
August 20, 2007
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Hispanic Association of Safety Professional’s (HASP) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces.
OSHA and HASP therefore formed an Alliance to provide HASP members the tools to provide volunteer courses in safety and health, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to fall hazards, struck by, crushed by and electrical hazards.

Meetings had been held at a restaurant in Odessa, TX up to July 2008 on the third Friday of each month. The location is in the process of being changed and the meeting day has changed to the last Thursday of each month.
IV. Training and Education Outreach and Communication
V. Upcoming Milestones
The group had floundered when the previous president became too busy to participate in the monthly meetings. Meetings suspended and it looked like the group would disband.
In June of 2008, one of the committee members rallied members and a new president and vice president were elected. These two gentlemen have made the commitment to grow the group to the point that everyone can attend, not just Hispanic Safety Professionals.
