'America's At-Risk Workers' Event Set for May 6

Preceding the symposium will be an announcement of the findings of a NIOSH study, undertaken with ASSE, that provides a more comprehensive understanding of the factors that affect vulnerable Spanish-speaking workers.

The American Society of Safety Engineers will host a North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week symposium on May 6 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., bringing together a variety of stakeholders from OSHA, NIOSH, and beyond to help expand attention to at-risk workers. ASSE's manager of government affairs & policy, Dave Heidorn, said the event would not be possible without the support of OSHA through ASSE's alliance with the agency.

Preceding the symposium will be an announcement of the findings of a NIOSH study, undertaken with ASSE, that provides a more comprehensive understanding of the factors that affect vulnerable Spanish-speaking workers.

The symposium will cover at-risk workers' involvement in the staffing industry and work for small businesses and contractors, with one session focused on fall protection.

Scheduled to take part in the event are ASSE President Trish Ennis, CSP; Kathy Tull, vice president of the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering; Christine M. Branche, Ph.D., FACE, NIOSH's principal associate director and director of its Office of Construction Safety and Health; Jim Maddux, director of OSHA's Directorate of Construction; Victoriano Anguis, president of the Interdisciplinary Association of Safety and Health of Mexico (AISOHMEX); Deborah Berkowitz, a senior policy advisor at OSHA; Selectemp Employment Services' Duane Grange; Stefan Bright of the International Window Cleaning Association; and Tom Shanahan of the National Roofing Contractors Association, among others.
