What is New in Safety and OSHA?- NIA Convention Safety Roundtable
A group of dedicated safety professionals and other individuals with an interest in safety gathered for a roundtable during the NIA Convention in Boca Raton, Florida during the week of April 18th. After discussing the NIA Safety Recognition Program and the STAR Reports, the group turned to a discussion of several key issues. These included the new serious injury reporting rules established by OSHA on January 1, 2015, questions about safety enforcement, the need for a competent person on each job site, construction industry confined space and predicted upcoming actions by OSHA. The discussions were led by Jason Heath of Zampell, Mike McCafferty of IREX and Ed Loosemore of PCI.
