Green jobs safety is focus of OSHA forum

[tweetmeme]OSHA will host a “Green Jobs” forum to help workers and small business employers understand the hazards posed by green jobs in construction, energy, and waste management and recycling. The event, scheduled for April 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST at the Labor Department in Washington, D.C., is part of a series that fosters collaboration between the small business community and federal government on safety and health management issues.

“Employers who race into this green economy without paying attention to worker safety will blunder into preventable injuries and deaths,” said Assistant Secretary Michaels in his remarks at a NIOSH conference on developing ways to integrate worker safety and health principles into the emerging “green jobs” industries.

To register, contact Mandi Garner at 202-693-2234 or Garner.Mandi@dol.gov. Visit OSHA’s Web site for more information on how OSHA assists small business employers in providing a safe and healthful workplace for their workers.
