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.
