AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE SOCIETY OF DIAGNOSTIC MEDICAL SONOGRAPHY
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and SDMS hereby renew the Alliance signed October 26, 2004. OSHA and SDMS are committed to protecting sonographers' health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and SDMS recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Onsite Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and SDMS will work together to achieve the following training and education goal:
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. Team members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs, Directorate of Science, Technology and Medicine and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Any 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 all signatories.
