OSHA Alliance

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.

With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to assure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.  From there an OSHA Cooperative Program was born. 

Through the Alliance Program, OSHA works with groups committed to worker safety and health to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses. These groups include unions, consulates, trade or professional organizations, businesses, faith- and community-based organizations, and educational institutions. OSHA and the groups work together to develop compliance assistance tools and resources, share information with workers and employers, and educate workers and employers about their rights and responsibilities. Alliance Program participants do not receive exemptions from OSHA inspections or any other enforcement benefits. View the OSHA Alliance Fact Sheet for more information about the program.

OSHA and CareerSafe work hand in hand to promote safety and health awareness among young workers in career and technical programs which include construction, agriculture, and healthcare industries. The Alliance that they share helps to create a dialogue about occupational safety and health training for young workers while engaging the participants in OSHA initiatives related to falls, and safety and health programs.  After many years of partnership, on June 26, 2018, CareerSafe signed a national alliance with The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to provide young workers, aged 16-24, educators and administrators with information and resources on best practices to keep them safe and healthy in the workplace. 

As a result of this OSHA Alliance, CareerSafe and other OSHA Alliance organizations work together to create two meaningful social media campaigns, #MySafeSummerJob and #KeepTeenWorkersSafe.  As this collaboration evolved, a need arose for a more permenant home for relevant resources and information.  Consequently, CareerSafe created and hosts a new website to house the social media messages used in the campaigns and to serve as a repository for safety and health resources intended to protect young workers.  The page includes links to useful educational materials, videos, regulations, and more.  Please visit the website at www.KeepTeenWorkersSafe.org to learn more and to help spread the safety and health messages for the young workers in all of our lives.
