CHM Alliance Ambassadors


Crane, Hoist and Monorail (CHM) Alliance (Signed October 05, 2005; renewed October 29, 2007; renewed November 21, 2012; renewed February 02, 2016; signed as Ambassador May 19, 2021).

Ambassador status reflects OSHA’s recognition that an Alliance participant has built and will continue to maintain a productive cooperative relationship with the agency. OSHA expects that Alliance Program Ambassadors will continue to share timely and relevant safety and health information with members and work collaboratively on issues that emerge among its membership. However, Ambassador participants do not have the data reporting and other requirements that come with a formal Alliance. Ambassador relationships remain in effect for the duration of an ongoing cooperative relationship and a good faith effort by both parties to meet the intent of the arrangement.

OSHA's Workers Memorial Day
We wanted to make you aware of two updates related to OSHA’s lead standard for construction (1910 CFR 1926.62): a correction to the Code of Federal Regulations issued by the Office of the Federal Register, and a correcting amendment issued by OSHA to restore regulatory text that was inadvertently removed by amendments published in February 2020 (85 FR 8726, 8735). As we communicated earlier this week, OSHA has also issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to solicit input from the public on how OSHA’s current lead standards for both construction and general industry could be modified to reduce worker blood lead levels (BLLs) and more effectively prevent adverse health effects in workers exposed to lead. Comments on the ANPRM may be submitted electronically to Docket No. OSHA-2018-0004 at www.regulations.gov through August 29, 2022.
