AGREEMENT ESTABLISHING AN ALLIANCE
BETWEEN
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
ENGLEWOOD, COLORADO AREA OFFICE
AND
SIX & GEVING INSURANCE, INC. OF COLORADO SPRINGS AND LAKEWOOD, COLORADO

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Six & Geving Insurance, Inc. recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and Six & Geving Insurance, Inc. hereby form an Alliance to provide Six & Geving Insurance clients 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 Six & Geving Insurance, Inc. 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, highway workzone safety, residential construction, fall protection, trenching and excavations, scaffolding, electrical safety, machine guarding, lockout/tagout, OSHA 10 hour construction classes, etc.).
OSHA and Six & Geving Insurance, Inc. 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, newsletters, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's Web site) to employers and employees in the industry.

  • Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding Six & Geving Insurance, Inc. developed newsletters, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).

  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects (eg, Home Builders Association of Colorado Springs, Trinidad State Junior College, 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 signatories.
