AGREEMENT RENEWING AN ALLIANCE
THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
THE SOCIETY OF THE PLASTICS INDUSTRY, INC.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc. (SPI) recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and SPI hereby renew their Alliance to provide SPI's members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources to promote machine safety and ergonomic awareness. OSHA and SPI will identify machinery hazards and provide potential solutions to reduce injuries (e.g., lacerations, burns, and amputations) and provide potential solutions for ergonomics problems. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and SPI recognize that OSHA's State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and SPI 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 quarterly 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 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. 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.
