Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Region VI


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the David L. Carrasco Job Corps recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and David L. Carrasco Job Corps hereby form an Alliance to provide David L. Carrasco Job Corps instructors and students with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect themselves and others from workplace health and safety hazards, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to fall hazards, struck by, crushed by and electrical hazards. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and David L. Carrasco Job Corps recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHA and the David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:

  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop training and education programs for Job Corps instructors and students regarding OSHA employee rights, fall hazards, crushed-by, struck-by and electrical hazards.
  • Arrange for the delivery of General Industry and Construction Safety and Health courses in English and Spanish.
  • Work to actively disseminate OSHA outreach materials to all employers who recruit Job Corp Student graduates.

OSHA and the David L. Carrasco Job Corps will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:

Raise others' awareness of and demonstrate their own commitment to workplace safety and health whenever OSHA and the David L. Carrasco Job Corps members speak publicly.

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. Team members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs. 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
