Upcoming Plans

In our previous report from October, 2005, we mentioned that the Council lost a key personnel's involvement. Since that time, two people were hired to re-staff the Occupational Safety and Health Department of the SCO. We are continuing to work closely with these individuals in a variety of capacities. The OSHA CAS is also continuing as a member of planning committee for the Annual Safety Conference held in Branson, Missouri. In addition, the CAS continues to give numerous training sessions before the various OSHACs.
