Safety & Health Professionals are ESSENTIAL.
April 26, 2020
The American Industrial Hygiene Association has successfully lobbied to have US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency update the language of "Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce" advisory to include explicitly workers who anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control workplace conditions that may cause worker injury or illness" as essential, critical infrastructure workers. This guidance from the federal government is used by states and divisions of the states to determine which workers are considered to be essential. This is in-line with Pennsylvania's response that we are life-sustaining and can continue to operate in those aspects that are necessary to protect life and safety. If you need assistance with training Pandemic Safety Officers (PSOs) as required by Pennsylvania for construction site monitoring in the restart, we can assist. If you need assistance with COVID-19 programs and policies, we can assist.
