March News

As basketball fans across the country focus on tournaments, OSHA is keeping an eye on 15,000 workplaces with poor safety records - and employers are focusing on eye safety for Workplace Eye Wellness Month. Here's what you'll see in this month's newsletter:
  • Government workers face 73% higher injury/illness rates than private industry
  • OSHA has put 15,000 workplaces on notice, but also offers no-cost consultations
  • 90 percent of workplace eye injuries are preventable - and we show you how
  • A new EPA lead rules take effect in April, and has the signs you need for compliance

    Have a safe month!
    Paul Sandefer, President
