ASSE Joins with NSC and AIHA to Back OSHA and NIOSH Budgets

Posted in on Wed, Nov 28, 2012

In an effort to help make sure the purpose and value of OSHA and NIOSH is not lost in the fervent and highly political debate on the federal budget now underway in Washington, DC,  ASSE joined with the National Safety Council (NSC) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) to raise a united voice in support of the budgets for those agencies.  The letter to Chairman Tom Harkin of the Senate Labor‐HHS‐Education Appropriations Subcommittee also addresses several appropriations riders that would limit OSHA’s capabilities and argues for the protection of the NIOSH Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (AgFF) sector research program and Education and Research Centers (ERCs).  The organizations will also lobby together for the agencies on Capitol Hill.
