AIHA addresses role of OSHA in changing times

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) has released a white paper on the emerging roles and issues facing OSHA. It is titled Perspective on the Role of OSHA in Advancing Occupational Safety and Health for the Nation.

AIHA acknowledges that since OSHA’s inception in 1970 “work conditions and challenges facing the nation’s workforce have not remained static.” Influences include major changes in technology, information systems, manufacturing processes, and biomedical science.

The white paper explains that “While AIHA believes in the mission of OSHA as originally envisioned, it recognizes the need for adaptations built upon OSHA’s history of successful programs and processes.”
