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


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Rental Association of Colorado recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the American Rental Association of Colorado hereby form an Alliance to provide 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 exposure to fall, struck-by, and electric shock hazards.

OSHA and the American Rental Association of Colorado will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:

  • Provide for the distribution of training and education material for equipment rental customers regarding fall, struck-by and electric shock hazards, and to provide expertise in communicating the content of such information to employers and employees in the industry.

OSHA and the American Rental Association of Colorado will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:

  • Provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing content/links for communicating such information through the American Rental Association of Colorado web site.

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA’s or the American Rental Association of Colorado’s conferences, local meetings, or other events as opportunities permit.

OSHA and the American Rental Association of Colorado will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:

  • Establish a dialogue with the American Rental Association and the American Rental Association of Colorado to assist with development of safety and health informational products and communications to augment the American Rental Association’s safety and health profile.

  • Raise others’ awareness of and demonstrate their own commitment to workplace safety and health whenever the American Rental Association of Colorado’s leaders address groups.

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. Team members will include representatives of OSHA and ARA. 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.
