OSHA’s assistant secretary looks back on the year 2013

On February 11, 2014, Dr. David Michaels, who serves as assistant secretary for OSHA, issued his annual update address.  He reported on a wide variety of matters.  For instance, he highlighted OSHA’s success in joining with more than 300 employers and labor organizations to hold a safety stand-down at construction sites throughout Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska.

“More than 6,500 workers were trained on preventing falls – the leading cause of deaths in construction,” explained Dr. Michaels.  EA will provide more in-depth coverage in the May issue of the magazine.
