Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Concluded Regional Alliances - Region VII

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Construction Careers Center (CCC) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful workplaces. OSHA and the CCC hereby form an Alliance to provide students of the Construction Careers Center with information, guidance and access to training resources that will help to increase their awareness of safety and health issues and OSHA as they begin their careers in construction.

OSHA and the CCC will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
  • Develop training and education programs on safety & health issues. Primarily this will focus on the mission and goals of OSHA, and safety and health information related to the primary construction hazards of falls, electrical, caught-in, and struck-by hazards.

  • Provide members of the CCC with greater access to safety and health publications and materials provided through the OSHA.
OSHA and the CCC will work together to achieve the following outreach and communications goals:
  • Develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, including electronic assistant tools

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at CCC classes and local events

  • Promote CCC members’ knowledge of OSHA’s cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, the Voluntary Protection Program, and the state consultation service
OSHA and the CCC will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
  • 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 to issues in the workplace
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.

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.
