OSHA LAUNCHES ELECTRONIC NEWS MEMO
WASHINGTON -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration today unveiled the premiere issue of its new electronic communication tool which will be e-mailed on a regular basis to subscribers.
Called QuickTakes, the e-news memo contains a snap shot of OSHA's activities that support safety and health in the workplace, including news and announcements, background information and other information of interest to stakeholders. Within the summaries, OSHA will often include links to the agency's website, as well as other sites related to safety and health that provides additional information on specific items.
"QuickTakes will deliver short and concise information of the agency's activities to safety and health stakeholders," said OSHA Administrator John Henshaw. "The e-mail, which will come directly to your electronic mail box if you subscribe, will cover just the highlights of important OSHA issues. Readers can then get additional information on a subject they would like."
Readers can receive the news memo by clicking on the QuickTakes icon on OSHA's homepage and following the subscription instructions. If readers choose not to receive QuickTakes automatically, they may view it on OSHA's website.
