OSHA invites interested parties to a facilitated discussion about the agency's updated draft Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines on Wednesday, December 9, from 1-3 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Labor's Frances Perkins Building in Washington, D.C. First published in 1989 to help employers establish their own safety and health programs, the voluntary guidelines are being updated to reflect best thinking and experiences from employers that have successfully used them. New material should be particularly helpful to small- and medium-sized businesses. Updates also address ways in which multiple employers at the same worksite can coordinate efforts to protect all workers. The discussion will be led by Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels.
