Alliance -- An OSHA Cooperative Program<< Back to Region VIII


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Pueblo Safety and Health Promotion Council (PSHPC) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and PSHPC hereby form an Alliance to provide PSHPC members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety in a variety of general industry and construction industry establishments in the Pueblo, Colorado area.

OSHA and PSHPC will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:

  • Work with OSHA to provide and/or support training and educational opportunities for PSHPC members and others and to provide expertise in communicating such information to employers and employees in the Pueblo, Colorado area.

  • Deliver or arrange for the delivery of a wide range of courses (eg, Cranes and Rigging, Respiratory Protection, OSHA Compliance Programs, etc.).

OSHA and PSHPC will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:

  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g. print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA’s Web site) to employers and employees in the Pueblo area.

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA’s or PSHPC conferences, local meetings, or other events.

  • Promote and encourage PSHPC members’ or worksites’ 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 for employers and employees in the Pueblo, Colorado area, 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 signatories.
