Injury and Illness Prevention Program
OSHA invites interested parties to participate in two stakeholder meetings on Injury and Illness Prevention Programs, in addition to those meetings announced on May 4, 2010. OSHA recently conducted two stakeholder meetings in East Brunswick, NJ, on June 3, 2010, and in Dallas, TX, on June 10, 2010. OSHA has closed registration on a third meeting in Washington, DC, to be held on June 29, 2010. More stakeholders expressed interest in participating in the Washington, DC meeting than could be accommodated. Therefore, OSHA is issuing this notice to announce an additional meeting in Washington, DC, as well as a meeting in Sacramento, CA. OSHA plans to use the information gathered at these meetings in developing an Injury and Illness Prevention Program proposed rule. The discussions will be informal and will provide the Agency with the necessary information to develop a rule that will help employers reduce workplace injuries and illnesses
