ASSE renews OSHA alliance to promote best practices for occupational safety
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) have renewed their alliance to promote best practices for keeping worker exposure to health and physical hazards to a minimum.
The renewed alliance will address motor vehicle safety and awareness of occupational health and safety for employees in the public sector.
"Our most recent Alliance with the American Society of Safety Engineers has focused on preventing falls, sprains and strains in construction, distracted driving, and hazards in shipyard employment," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels. "Our continued Alliance with ASSE will help ensure that workers are aware of on-the-job hazards and help reduce occupational illnesses and injuries."
OSHA's Alliance Program works with unions, consulates, trade or professional organizations, among others to increase workplace safety. The renewed ASSE Alliance will focus on protecting workers from on the job hazards and injuries. Equip employees with the appropriate safety products, including fall protection, hard hats, and work gloves to help reduce the chance of fatalities, injuries, and illnesses.
