OSHA Alliance Program
Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with the public to promote safe and secure workplaces and to enhance worker voice in the workplace. OSHA joins with groups committed to worker safety and health, including unions, consulates, trade or professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, businesses, and educational institutions, to leverage resources and expertise to help ensure safe and healthy workplaces and worker rights under the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act.
Participants in the Alliance Program support OSHA's strategic goals by developing Alliance agreements and implementing project plans that emphasize:
- Raising Awareness of OSHA's Rulemaking and Enforcement Initiatives, such as by:
- Sharing information on OSHA's regulatory agenda and opportunities to participate in the rulemaking process.
- Training workers on new and revised standards.
- Developing worker information on new and revised standards.
- Sharing information on National Emphasis Programs (NEPs).
- Developing compliance assistance materials for other specifically targeted hazards/industries.
- Participating in various forums and groups to discuss ways of improving workplace safety and health programs.
- Encouraging worker participation in workplace safety and health.
- Outreach and Communication, such as by:
- Reaching out to at-risk workers to educate them about their rights under the OSH Act.
- Developing relationships with organizations, such as consulates, that represent vulnerable workers to raise awareness of workers' rights.
- Creating and sharing compliance assistance materials in English, Spanish, and other languages for workers and/or employers.
- Conducting best practice seminars in support of OSHA's enforcement initiatives.
- Speaking or exhibiting at conferences and meetings.
- Training and Education, such as by:
