The American Chemistry Council (ACC) and the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have established what they call an ‘historic alliance to advance workplace safety and health’.
In a statement, the ACC said that the alliance recognised and promoted the ‘common safety commitments of the ACC’s Responsible Care initiative and OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP)’.
The alliance identifies joint opportunities to make VPP evaluations and Responsible Care audits more efficient. In addition, ACC and OSHA will work to protect employee health by sharing information, providing training and using resources more effectively.
ACC president and chief executive officer, Jack Gerard, commented: ‘We expect the efficiencies gained in this partnership to result in continued improvement in health and safety performance and cost savings among our members and Responsible Care partners’.
