The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Regions 1 through 10 and the Elevator Contractors of America (ECA), Elevator Industry Work Preservation Fund (EIWPF), International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC), National Association of Elevator Contractors (NAEC), National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP), and National Elevator Industry, Inc., (NEII), collectively known as the "Elevator Industry Safety Partners" (EISP) recognize the value of maintaining a collaborative relationship to foster safety and health practices and programs to improve American workplaces.

OSHA and EISP have an emphasis on providing the conveyance industry employers and workers, and the public with information, guidance, and access to industry specific training resources that help reduce and prevent exposure to industry-recognized hazards. Elevator industry conveyances include, but are not limited to, elevators, escalators, moving walks, dumbwaiters, Limited Use Limited Application (LULA) lifts, wheelchair lifts, sidewalk lifts, dock lifts, material lifts, inclines, and other special purpose conveyances or similar industry devices designed to transport or maneuver persons or property. Specifically, each organization is committed to providing its members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that help them protect workers and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). Through the Alliance, the organizations work to reduce and prevent exposure to the "Focus Four" (falls, electrical, struck-by, and caught between) and other recognized hazards during the construction, modernization, maintenance, and repair of conveyances.
