OSH Plans Are What We Do
Comments

OSHA wants to hear from OSH professionals about its updated Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines. Last updated in 1989, these guidelines offer an overview of how to implement a safety management plan in any workplace. As ASSE President Mike Belcher explains in his February 2016 message in Professional Safety, "There is no more important stakeholder in this opportunity than every individual member of ASSE. OSH management plans are what we do, who we are at our best, and how we help employers best protect workers’ lives. OSHA’s effort to update its guidelines for every employer is an opportunity for us to spread the message to every employer about how to best do safety."

Although not legally binding, these guidelines are a powerful tool and an opportunity to communicate the value of the profession. Please review the comments and submit your comments by Feb. 22, 2016.
