All public employees were required to meet OSHA standards beginning July 1, 1994. This was done when House Bill 308 was passed in 1993.
Who knows how many injuries and deaths were saved with this legislation in the last 21 years?
Government has come a long way in that period, but still has a way to go to protect our best resource, our staff!
Ask your local public employer what they are doing to enforce, educate and train?
This effort saves money, lives and protects everyone!
We have been doing it aggressively for 21 years here at the Northwestern Water & sewer District!
