Washington, DC -- The American Textile Manufacturers Institute (ATMI) and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) formally agreed today to establish an Alliance to promote safe and healthful working conditions for textile industry employees. Best practices derived from ATMIs Quest for the Best Program is also an important element of the Alliance. Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health John Henshaw and ATMI President Parks Shackelford signed the agreement."I congratulate ATMI for demonstrating their commitment to safety and health," said OSHA Administrator Henshaw. "This Alliance helps demonstrate that safety and health add value to the workplace and to the individual worker, and its an important feature in our commitment to cooperative efforts with other groups and organizations to improve workplace safety."According to the agreement, the Alliance will provide ATMI members with information and guidance to help protect employees health and safety, particularly in producing and preventing hazards in the textile workplace. ATMI and OSHA will also join in an outreach and communications effort, seeking opportunities to jointly develop and disseminate information through print and electronic media, particularly using the ATMI and OSHA websites. ATMI members will be encouraged to consider OSHAs cooperative programs such as compliance assistance and the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).Representatives from ATMI and OSHA will form a team to develop a plan of action, determine working procedures, and identify the roles and responsibilities of the participants. The team will meet regularly to evaluate the program and provide information on activities and results in achieving the goals of the Alliance.
