Henshaw, Howard to Opine on OSHA under Obama

An American Society of Safety Engineers' webcast featuring OSHA's former Assistant Secretary of Labor John Henshaw and former NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard discussing the future of OSHA in a new administration will be held on Dec. 9 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m..

According to ASSE, Henshaw and Howard will discuss possible new directions for OSHA under a new administration and the possible impact on the practice of SH&E professionals. Tom Cecich, CSP, CIH, former chair of the ASSE Government Affairs Committee, will moderate the event.

"The next year has the potential to see the most significant changes in U.S. safety and health public policy in a generation," Cecich said. "The webcast will present the views of two of the most respected leaders in the occupational safety, health, and environmental field. They've both been in federal safety and health leadership positions at the beginning of a new Administration and have a lot of perspective about the changes we are likely to see."

The webcast format allows for interaction with the speakers. All registered participants will receive a link to the recorded version of the webcast for later viewing. For more information or to register visit www.asse.org/cartpage.php?link=cc08osha or contact customer service at 847-699-2929.
