Signed February 9, 2004; renewed May 23, 2006 and May 13, 2008
The alliancebetween ILMA and OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is the first of its kind for the lubricants industry and has been described as "ground-breaking."
- they can provide to their customers that will them protect workers from potential adverse effects of exposure to metalworking fluids
- will help maintain employee and community health and safety, and
- increase the value of LubeCare®, ILMA's Product Stewardship Program, to ILMA member companies.
ILMA and OSHA have agreed to collaborate on a number of goals, notably developing training and education programs on the safe and proper use of lubricant products. Outreach and education are both strong foundations in this agreement, as ILMA and OSHA work together to effectively communicate their activities to the larger lubricants community, including ILMA members, end users, and other non-governmental organizations. In addition to partnering with OSHA, ILMA, together with industry partners Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers and Society of Manufacturing Engineers, will work together to achieve outreach and education goals set forth by the alliance.
