Occupational Safety and Health Administration

(U.S. Department of Labor) and the

National Ready Mixed Concrete Association


CLICK HERE to view the most recent OSHA Alliance Meeting Minutes (May 2008)


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the NRMCA recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safer and more healthful American workplaces. OSHA and the NRMCA hereby form an Alliance to provide NRMCA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect employees’ health and safety, particularly in reducing and preventing exposure to hazards in the Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) industry focusing on development of fact sheets and tool box talks for Ready Mixed Concrete Mixer Drivers and Concrete Plant personnel on the dangers of confined spaces. In developing this Alliance, OSHA and NRMCA recognize that OSHA’s State Plan and Consultation Project partners are an integral part of the OSHA national effort.

OSHA and NRMCA will work together to achieve the following training and education goals:

  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise to develop other workplace safety and health curricula on RMC industry specific hazards.

OSHA and NRMCA will work together to achieve the following outreach and communication goals:

  • Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards, and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g. print and electronic media, electronic assistance tools and OSHA’s and the NRMCA Web sites) to employers and employees in the industry.

  • Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA’s or the NRMCA Annual conference, the NRMCA Spring Operations, Environmental and Safety (OES) meeting and the NRMCA Fall OES Forum.

  • Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding the NRMCA best practices or effective approaches and publicize results through outreach by NRMCA and through OSHA- or NRMCA-developed materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures (or any other applicable forum).

  • Promote and encourage NRMCA members’ participation in OSHA’s cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, the Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP), and the Consultation Program and its Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

  • Work with other Alliance participants on specific issues and projects on RMC industry specific hazards that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.

OSHA and NRMCA will work together to achieve the following goals related to promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health:

  • Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on RMC industry issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace or to provide input on safety and health issues.

OSHA’s Alliances provide parties an opportunity to participate in a voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA for purposes such as training and education, outreach and communication and promoting a national dialogue on workplace safety and health. These Alliances have proved to be valuable tools for both OSHA and its Alliance participants. By entering into an Alliance with a party, OSHA is not endorsing any of that party’s products or services; nor does the Agency enter into an Alliance with the purpose of promoting a particular party’s products or services.

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 Consultation Projects’ participation on the team.
