ASSE Renews Alliances With OSHA & NIOSH
June 30, 2008

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) recently renewed its Alliance between the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control’s National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) at the 47th annual ASSE Professional Development Conference and Exposition held this year in Las Vegas.

The OSHA/ASSE agreement extends the continued goal of fostering a culture of prevention for safety and health hazards at U.S. jobsites. The Alliance will continue to focus on ergonomic hazards, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), and motor vehicle safety. OSHA and ASSE will also address issues impacting non-English speaking and youth employees, and will continue to promote the annual North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week to be held May 3-9 in 2009 along with Occupational Safety and Health Professional Day May 6th, 2009.

Through their Alliance, NIOSH and ASSE will collaborate to advance the protection of workers, promote best practices, and encourage employers to develop and utilize safety and health management programs and effective prevention strategies and technologies. They will continue to work together to provide outreach, communication and professional development opportunities regarding occupational safety and health.
