NSC-OSHA Alliance

National Safety Council Proud to be an OSHA Ambassador

Since entering into an alliance in 2003, the National Safety Council and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have worked together to improve workplace health and safety by sharing information, guidance and access to safety training resources. OSHA and NSC promote understanding of the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act to help save lives and prevent unintentional workplace injuries.

OSHA and NSC recognize the value of maintaining this collaborative relationship and have committed to continue their work together through an Alliance Program Ambassador relationship.

OSHA and NSC partner in the development of compliance assistance tools and best-practice documents; convene, participate and exhibit at occupational safety forums and stakeholder meetings, such as the annual NSC Congress & Expo; and partner with other OSHA Alliance participants to address construction and general industry safety issues.

In recognition of this ongoing commitment, OSHA will continue to foster an active relationship with NSC by:

  • Providing routine communications on enforcement, regulatory and outreach initiatives
  • Offering opportunities to speak at OSHA Alliance Program and agency stakeholder meetings or events, such as outreach and training activities through the national, regional or area office, and the National Alliance Program Construction Roundtable and Forum
  • Engaging in information sharing and technical discussions
  • Maintaining the organization’s status as an Alliance Program Ambassador

NSC will continue to foster an active relationship with OSHA by:

  • Sharing information with members and stakeholders on OSHA’s national initiatives and encouraging their participation in OSHA’s outreach initiatives and rule-making processes
  • Sharing information with members and stakeholders on occupational safety and health laws and standards, including the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers
  • Encouraging NSC chapters to build relationships with OSHA’s national, regional and area offices
  • Sharing information with OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding NSC good practices or effective approaches through training programs, workshops, seminars and lectures
  • Offering opportunities to speak, exhibit or appear at one another’s conferences, local meetings or other events

OSHA’s cooperative programs provide organizations an opportunity to collaborate for purposes including raising awareness of OSHA’s initiatives, outreach, communication, training and education. These programs have proven to be valuable tools for both OSHA and participants like NSC.
