Event: Stakeholder Meeting on Updated Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines

Description: OSHA invites interested parties to a facilitated discussion about the agency's updated draft Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.

The voluntary guidelines, first published in 1989 to help employers establish their own safety and health programs, are being updated to reflect modern technology and practices. New material should be particularly helpful to small- and medium-sized businesses, and it will address ways in which multiple employers at the same worksite can coordinate efforts to protect all workers.

This meeting, to be led by Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels, will be the first public discussion of the document and will feature an overview of changes made. Questions should be submitted in advance to publicmichaelsdavid@dol.gov. Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register for the event, go to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/worker-health-and-safety-meeting-future-of-work-symposium-registration-19473562951.
