ASSE Applauds OSHA for Sustainability in Workplace White Paper

ASSE President Tom Cecich released a statement following OSHA’s whitepaper

The ASSE has released a statement from President Tom Cecich in response to OSHA’s white paper titled, “Sustainability in the Workplace: A New Approach for Advancing Worker Safety and Health.”

“The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) applauds the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for recognizing, in its white paper, “Sustainability in the Workplace:  A New Approach for Advancing Worker Safety and Health,” the great opportunity the corporate sustainability movement provides to encourage better commitment to worker safety and health.”

The Center for Safety and Health Sustainability (CSHS) was founded in 2011 by the ASSE to advocate for the inclusion of worker safety and health in the efforts of corporations and other organizations to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, according to a report.

OSHA’s white paper helps raise awareness for organizations to include workplace safety and health risks in a sustainable fashion.
