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 proven 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.
- Develop and disseminate case studies illustrating the business value of
safety and health and publicize the results.
- Convene or participate in forums and round table discussions on construction
safety and health issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
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, the implementation
team will meet at least quarterly to track and share information on activities
and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. Team members will include
representatives of OSHA’s St. Louis Area Office, and the Executive Directors and
President of the Construction Careers Center. OSHA-SLAO will afford the
opportunity for representatives of the State of Missouri 21(d) consultation
program to participate as well.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years from the date of signing. Any
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 all signatories.
