OSHA to hold meeting on draft updated Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines

Discussions will cover general guidelines, key issues from public comments

Posted February 3, 2016

OSHA invites interested parties to attend a day-long roundtable discussion on the agency's draft updated Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.

The meeting is set for Thursday, March 10, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Labor's Frances Perkins Building in Washington, D.C.

Those wishing to attend must register by March 3. Attendees can choose from several levels of participation in the discussion, which will cover the guidelines in general, plus key issues that were raised in public comments. The comment period closes February 22, 2016.

First published in 1989 to help employers establish their own safety and health programs, the guidelines are being updated to reflect changes in the workplace and modern safety practices. The new material should be particularly helpful to small- and medium-sized businesses, and it will address ways in which multiple employers at the same worksite can use to coordinate their efforts to protect all workers.
