We will be holding a Town Hall meeting to discuss the chapter’s comment on OSHA’s pending Reconsideration and Revocation of 18E Final Approval status for the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH). We would like to hear our membership’s opinion and perspective on the matter to inform chapter leadership as we draft a comment for response to OSHA’s request for feedback.

When you register for this event, like previous meetings, you will receive an email with a link for the virtual GoToMeeting event. The event details will also have a call in number if you prefer to join that way. If you are unable to attend, but wish to provide your feedback, you can email comments to president@az.assp.org

As a reminder about what question we are trying to answer, from the publication, “Comments should be directed only to OSHA’s proposed revocation and the bases for that revocation…”, also, “…OSHA will consider comments addressing matters other than the proposed revocation to be beyond the scope of this proposal…” Here is the link to the website for the publication in the Federal Register if you would like to view the supporting documentation and OSHA’s statement. Here is the link to view the 144+ comments that have been submitted about this topic.

6/21/22 – ***UPDATE*** you can view the chapter’s comment here.
