OSHA Implements RSS Feeds for its Communications Products

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented Really Simple Syndication (RSS) Feeds to provide OSHA customers a personal, direct channel for receiving the latest news and information from the OSHA Web site.

RSS is a web-based technology used by businesses, organizations and government to publish frequently updated content. OSHA news releases are the first RSS feed to be provided to stakeholders.

"We are excited to implement this technology as we continue to expand access to OSHA's products for our stakeholders," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. "RSS will help to ensure subscribers receive real-time news from OSHA."

The RSS Reader regularly checks for new content from OSHA's Web site and provides the user with a headline that links to the new posting and a short description. To receive OSHA's RSS feeds, users can download an RSS Reader or use a Web-based RSS Reader. More information on the use of RSS Feeds is available on the new OSHA RSS Feeds page.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace for their employees. OSHA's role is to promote the safety and health of America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards; providing training, outreach, and education; establishing partnerships; and encouraging continual process improvement in workplace safety and health.
