ASSE Comments on OSHA’s SHPM Guidelines

Comments_000036172186ASSE recently submitted comments to OSHA on its proposed update of the Safety and Health Program Management (SHPM) Guidelines. The Society supports the effort, but urged OSHA to include a prevention through design element and to include provisions that would ensure greater recognition of the role OSH professionals play in developing and managing safety and health management systems.

ASSE President Mike Belcher, CSP, will represent ASSE at a March 10 public stakeholder meeting in Washington, DC.
