OSHA Forms Alliance with Center for Business and Public Policy, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University

WASHINGTON -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Center for Business and Public Policy (CBPP) at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business, today formed an Alliance to focus on issues that are important to general industry and small business, such as the economic value of safety and health programs.

"Education is one of the cornerstones of safety and health," said Jonathan L. Snare, Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA. "This Alliance offers a unique opportunity to work directly with the business leaders of tomorrow and establish a foundation of knowledge on the value of effective safety and health programs."

"Our Alliance will promote both OSHA's interest in assuring a healthy and safe workplace, as well as the Center's interests in understanding the business and economic drivers behind a safe and healthy workplace," added John W. Mayo, Executive Director, Center for Business and Public Policy, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University. "This partnership of academic and government resources will create new insights and improve policymaking beyond what either of us could do alone."

The Alliance signing took place today during CBPP's safety and health symposium, "Engaging Tomorrow's Leaders in Safety and Health: The Case Study Approach." Acting Assistant Secretary Snare also made a presentation during the symposium on the OSHA and CBPP Alliance.
