Norris and Michaels Renew ASSE-OSHA Alliance
On March 16, ASSE President Terrie Norris and Assistant Secretary David Michaels signed a renewed Alliance agreement between ASSE and OSHA. The overall goal of the two-year Alliance is to promote best practices for reducing and preventing worker exposures to health and physical hazards. More specifically, ASSE and OSHA will continue work together to address non-English or limited English-speaking workers especially through the efforts of ASSE’s Safety Professionals and the Latino Workforce (SPALW); advancing awareness of workplace safety through NAOSH Week; motor vehicle safety; and awareness of workplace safety and health for public sector employees. The achievements of the Alliance are documented on OSHA’s website at ASSE. ASSE’s press release for the renewal is at ASSE press release and OSHA’s at OSHA news release.
