Statement of Charles N. Jeffress
Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health
April 28, 1998
Contact: Michael Fluharty (202) 219-8151
"Worker Memorial Day reminds us that we must do all we can to protect the lives and well-being of America's Workers. With more than 100 million employees to protect in more than 6 million work sites, OSHA can never have enough resources. That is why it is so important that we leverage our investments wisely. The Cooperative Compliance Program is designed to do just that. It would have allowed us to channel our efforts where they were most needed -- to those work sites where injury and illness rates are the highest. We expect to win in court, and we look forward to putting this program back on track as soon as possible."
