The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Excelsior Springs Job Corps Center (hereinafter Job Corps) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the Job Corps hereby form an Alliance to provide Job Corps students, instructors and other stakeholders affiliated with Job Corps operations with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to occupational hazards faced by young workers in the workforce. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and the Job Corps Center recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHA and the Job Corps will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
  • Develop and present safety and health training and education to Job Corps students, administrators, instructors and other relevant stakeholders at the Excelsior Springs and Kansas City Alternate Training Center facilities.

  • Develop and present safety and health training for trades that do not currently have access to such training in their existing curriculums. These trades include Pharmacy Technology, Finance & Business, Health Care, Culinary Arts programs and TCU program.

  • OSHA agrees to provide guest speakers from OSHA for new student orientations and at assemblies.

  • OSHA agrees to provide OSHA 10 hour training to students who do not already have access to this resource through their existing curriculum including the soft trade programs at the Job Corps facilities. These trades include Pharmacy Technology, Finance & Business, Health Care, Culinary Arts programs and TCU Programs.
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.

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.
