U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
COORDINATING COMMITTEE FOR AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR) recognize the value of continuing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces and hereby renew the Alliance originally signed on February 17, 2004 and renewed on September 12, 2006. Through the Alliance, OSHA and CCAR will continue to provide CCAR affiliates and others in the automotive repair industry, including but not limited to youth and Spanish-speaking employees, with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees' health and safety. Through the Alliance, the organizations will focus on electrical safety and on reducing and preventing exposure to hexavalent chromium, asbestos and automotive lifts hazards. In renewing this Alliance, OSHA and CCAR recognize that OSHA's State Plan and On-site Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.
OSHA and CCAR will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:
An implementation team made up of representatives of both organizations will meet to develop a plan of action, determine working procedures, and identify the roles and responsibilities of the participants. In addition, they will meet at least three times per year to track and share information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance. Team members will include representatives of OSHA's Directorate of Cooperative and State Programs and any other appropriate offices. OSHA will encourage State Plan States' and OSHA On-Site Consultation Projects' participation on the team.
This agreement will remain in effect for two years. Either signatory may terminate it for any reason at any time, provided they give 30 days written notice. This agreement may be modified at any time with the concurrence of both signatories.
