AIHA Supports President Obama's Job Proposal, Urges Worker Protection
The American Industrial Hygiene Association recently sent a letter to President Obama offering support for his proposal to create more than three million new jobs for American workers.
With 600,000 of these jobs intended for the construction industry and another 400,000 for manufacturing, AIHA said it believes it is vital that the appropriate number of health and safety professionals is included in this new labor force to protect these new workers.
As the new administration moves forward, AIHA has urged the President to direct OSHA to ensure that the new jobs created by his stimulus package have adequate workplace protections for these workers.
