Sharing information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding ASA best practices or effective approaches, and publicizing results through outreach by ASA and through OSHA- or ASA-developed materials, training programs, workshops, seminars, and lectures. Promoting and encouraging ASA members’ participation in OSHA’s cooperative programs such as compliance assistance, the Voluntary Protection Programs, and the On-site Consultation Program and its Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program. Working with other Alliance participants on specific maritime industry issues and projects that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program. Convening or participating in forums, roundtable discussions, or stakeholder meetings on shipyard safety and health hazards to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
