OSHA, Forest Service in Alliance for Montana and Dakotas

The alliance will be a platform to share information, resources, and industry best practices among Forest Service and OSHA officials.

OSHA, the U.S. Forest Service Northern Division, and the National Federation of Federal Employees Northern Region have signed a two-year alliance to promote safe practices in Montana and North and South Dakota's forestry, logging, firefighting, and natural resource industries. OSHA North Dakota Area Director Eric Brooks, OSHA Montana Area Director Art Hazen, OSHA South Dakota Area Director Sheila Stanley, and U.S. Forest Service Regional Forester Leanne Martin were present for the signing in Missoula.

The alliance will be a platform to share information, resources, and industry best practices among Forest Service and OSHA officials. "This alliance will enhance the safety of natural resource field operations, as well as wildfire firefighting operations," said Brooks.

USFS and the Northern Region's Local Lodges of the NFFE formalized a Memorandum of Understanding in August in which the parties agreed to cooperate and work collaboratively to support the alliance.
