Replaces Bayside District Office
NEW YORK -- The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the U.S. Department of Labor has opened a new Queens District Office in Little Neck, N.Y.
According to Richard Mendelson, OSHA's Manhattan area office director, the new office replaces the Bayside district office which was vacated earlier this month for more modern and efficient quarters in Little Neck.
"The Queens District Office stands ready to continue providing coverage under the Occupational Safety and Health Act to all private sector workplaces in Queens County," said Mendelson.
Anyone with a workplace safety or health problem in Queens can call the office at (718) 279-9060. The office's mailing address is 45-17 Marathon Parkway, Little Neck, N.Y. 11362.
Mendelson stressed that employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace for their employees. OSHA's role is to assure the safety and health of America's workers by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual improvement in workplace safety and health.
