OSHA's Dr. David Michaels Video Address at NATE UNITE 2014
Dr. David Michaels, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health, provided a pre-recorded keynote video address to attendees at NATE UNITE 2014 in San Diego, California last week. Dr. Michaels, a relentless advocate for workplace safety and health, has increased OSHA’s focus and capabilities in the areas of data analysis and program evaluation during his tenure.
During his remarks at NATE UNITE 2014, Dr. Michaels focused on OSHA using all of its available tools to improve the safety of telecommunications workers. Michaels referenced OSHA’s renewed focus on increasing enforcement in the industry; including enforcing the multi-employer worksite liability doctrine and providing greater scrutiny and oversight of industry contracts.
“Dr. Michaels provided an important message to attendees at NATE UNITE 2014”, stated NATE Executive Director Todd Schlekeway. “NATE looks forward to continuing our working relationship with Dr. Michaels and OSHA on issues of mutual interest that promote workplace safety and health”, added Schlekeway.
