Safety Speak: The Future of OSHA—Biden Chooses a New Leader

In this episode, Editor Sydny Shepard discusses NIOSH's new tool to measure worker well-being, worker hesitation to returning to the office without COVID-19 vaccines and Biden's nomination for OSHA Head. Who is he and does this nomination mean for the agency?

On this Safety Speak episode of the podcast, we will discuss a survey distributed by the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety and how employers and health professionals are encouraged to distribute the resource to their employees. And statistics are showing employees prefer the COVID-19 vaccine be distributed to all co-workers upon returning to work.

Plus, a new leader is nominated to take control of OSHA. Who is he and why did he get chosen to take the reins on the administration? We talk with Richard Cerenzio, Corporate Health, Safety, Environment and Sustainability Senior Technical Director at ISN about what we can expect from OSHA if Parker is confirmed.
