Former Heads of OSHA, NIOSH Headline American Society of Safety Engineers Webinar on Future of OSHA in A New Administration
Des Plaines, IL (November 21, 2008) — An American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) webcast featuring former Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) John Henshaw and former Director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Dr. John Howard discussing the future of OSHA in a New Administration will be held this December 9 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m..
Henshaw and Howard will discuss possible new directions for OSHA under a new administration and the possible impact on the practice of SH&E professionals. Tom Cecich, CSP, CIH, former chair of the ASSE Government Affairs Committee (GAC), will moderate the webcast.
“The next year has the potential to see the most significant changes in U.S. safety and health public policy in a generation,” Cecich said. “The webcast will present the views of two of the most respected leaders in the occupational safety, health and environmental field. They’ve both been in federal safety and health leadership positions at the beginning of a new Administration and have a lot of perspective about the changes we are likely to see.”
