|<< Back to Concluded Regional Alliances - Region VIII
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Colorado Safety
Association (CSA) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative
relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and
CSA hereby form an Alliance to provide employers, workers 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 a variety of general industry and construction hazards in Colorado.
OSHA and CSA will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:
- Deliver or arrange for the delivery of quarterly construction and general industry seminars
(eg, fall protection, trenching and excavations, electrical safety, machine guarding and lockout/tagout,
cranes and rigging, vehicle safety, CPR, AED utilization, etc.).
OSHA and CSA will work together to achieve the following outreach and
- Develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, including electronic
assistance tools and links from OSHA's and CSA's Web sites to promote training conducted under this Alliance.
- Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's or CSA conferences, local meetings, or other events such as the Rocky
Mountain Safety and Health Conference.
- Promote and encourage CSA members' participation in OSHA's cooperative programs such as compliance assistance,
the Voluntary Protection Program, Consultation, and the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program.
- Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects (eg, Crane and Rigging Safety, SafetyFest of
the West, etc.), of interest to Colorado employers, that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
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
