Western Swing: OSHA Opens Four New Area Offices

One is in Las Vegas, bringing praise from the congresswoman who district includes that city. The other three are in Oakland, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; and Phoenix, Ariz.

OSHA announced the opening of new area offices in Las Vegas, Nev.; Oakland, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; and Phoenix, Ariz.

The Las Vegas office at 600 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Suite 750 (702-388-6150; the toll-free hotline to report dangerous conditions is 800-321-6742), is noteworthy because of OSHA's increase attention to safety in that state and the performance of the state's Nevada OSHA agency.

The new area director of OSHA's Las Vegas office is Joy Flack, CIH, who has more than 23 years of federal and state OSHA experience, according to the federal agency. Flack previously was area director in Bellevue, Wash. "With the brand new area office in Las Vegas, we will improve service to workers and employers in Nevada and enhance our coordination and oversight with the state plan," said Ken Nishiyama Atha, OSHA's regional administrator in San Francisco.

U.S. Rep. Dina Titus, a Democrat, represents Nevada's Third District, which includes Las Vegas. She is a member of the House Education & Labor Committee and a strong advocate of increased oversight in Las Vegas by federal OSHA. "I welcome the opening of a much-needed federal OSHA office in Las Vegas,” she said in a statement released by her congressional office. "It is clear from Nevada OSHA's record that it has let our workers down. A new office in the region will enable a stronger federal-state partnership that will improve training and support for Nevada OSHA without taking away state control."
