U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
KANSAS CITY AREA OFFICE
CENTRO LATINO de APOYO, RECURSOS Y OPORTUNIDADES (CLARO)
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Centro Latino de Apoyo, Recursos y
Oportunidades (CLARO) continue to recognize the value of our collaborative relationship to foster
safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and CLARO hereby continue our Alliance to provide
CLARO members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help
them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing occupational
injury and illnesses to Hispanic workers.
OSHA and CLARO will continue to work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
OSHA and CLARO will continue to work together to achieve the following outreach
and communication goals:
- Deliver training and education programs on employees’ occupational safety and health rights and
responsibilities (including OSHA’s whistleblower or anti-discrimination provisions); and safety and
health issues faced by Hispanic employees;
- Deliver or arrange for the delivery of informational courses about hazards in industries such as
meat processing, where those clients whom CLARO serves are commonly employed.
OSHA and CLARO will continue to work together to achieve the following goals related
to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:
- Develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, including electronic
assistance tools and links from OSHA’s Web site;
- Speak, exhibit, or appear at conferences and local CLARO meetings as requested;
- Train CLARO personnel about workplace safety and health issues faced by the Hispanic population.
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.
- Raise others’ awareness of and demonstrate their own commitment to workplace safety and health
whenever CLARO leaders address groups.
- Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on 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, they will meet at least quarterly 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.
