  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, volunteer relationships, or other community meetings related to vehicle safety, first aid, CPR and AED training and safety and health management system programs to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
OSHAs 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 partys products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular partys 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.
