Latest Safety and Health Manual Featured At July 21 CONN-OSHA Roundtable Meeting

For immediate release
July 9, 2009

WETHERSFIELD, Recent revisions by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to its 2008 Safety and Health Requirements Manual – the document that establishes safety guidelines for certified personnel and contractors working in construction, maintenance, research and development – will be detailed during a July 21 Breakfast Roundtable Discussion Group meeting being sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Labor’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (CONN-OSHA). 

Titled A Safety and Health Requirements Manual that Covers Everything, the session will run from 10 a.m. until noon in the agency’s Wethersfield Central Office, located at 200 Folly Brook Boulevard.

Conducted by CONN-OSHA Safety Training Specialist John Able, the roundtable event is designed to improve and enhance safety and health in the workplace. According to Able, the updated manual is a tool that can be used to help ensure the safe performance of any construction and maintenance tasks.

“The manual focuses on improving safety and efficiency by providing guidelines that are clearer, more concise and user-friendly,” Able notes. “We will be highlighting for how this annual can make a difference in terms of safety practices that both general industry and construction employers will want to employ.” Able will also show attendees how to locate a downloadable PDF version on the Internet.

Also continuing this month will be the discussion portion of the roundtable program. Time permitting, each person taking part can submit a question for discussion and those in the room will be invited to share their opinion regarding the issue.  

Admission to the roundtable is free, but pre-registration is required. To register, or for additional information, please contact Able at (860) 263-6902, or via email to able.john@dol.gov.
