|<< Back to Sealant Waterproofing and Restoration Institute
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Sealant Waterproofing and Restoration Institute (SWRInstitute) continue to recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. To that end, OSHA and SWRInstitute hereby renew in part the Alliance signed February 20, 2003, and renewed July 21, 2005, July 11, 2007, and July 6, 2009, with a continued emphasis on the sealant, waterproofing and restoration industry. Specifically, both organizations are committed to providing SWRInstitute members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations will continue to address fall, motor vehicle, and hazard communication hazards and issues related to small businesses. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and SWRInstitute recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

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 or promoting, nor does it intend to endorse or promote, any of that party’s products or services.
