AIHA Reps Discuss Sensor Technology with China

The 4th annual U.S.-China Workplace Safety and Health Dialogue took place in Seattle on August 27

AIHA representatives, as well as members of MSHA, discussed proximity detection systems among other things at the fourth annual U.S.-China Workplace Safety and Health Dialogue which took place in Seattle on August 27.

AIHA Executive Director Peter J. O’Neil and President Daniel H. Anna were in attendance, as was Assistant Secretary of Labor for MSHA Joseph Main. Main led the discussion on technological advancements that are helping keep workers safe in the min industry, mostly through proximity detection systems.

An AIHA news release says sensor technology is one of the organization’s main focus areas, having recently conducted research to map the current landscape of the technology.

Joining the U.S. reps were Chief Engineer Wu Xin and Deputy Directory-General Bai Ran from the State Administration for Work Safety (SAWS), Beijing, and Regional Administrator Ken Atha of OSHA.

"AIHA has long valued its domestic and international partnerships, and we appreciate inclusion in this important meeting," O'Neil said. "It gave us the opportunity to continue a decade-long dialogue with U.S. and Chinese counterparts."
