OSHA aiming to protect workers from refrigeration toxin exposure

The Global Cold Chain Alliance represents roughly 1,650 employers affiliated with the temperature-controlled (or cold chain) products industry. These employers, and the 300,000 or so workers they employ, make significant efforts aimed at ensuring that various perishable products that Americans rely on maintain their quality and are safe when consumers pick them off store shelves or otherwise come into contact with them.

Tell OSHA what you think about proposed work safety rule

When the Occupational Safety and Health Administration crafts a proposed rule concerning work safety, it must generally submit the rule to the public for comment before it can finalize the rule. This feedback mechanism allows workers, safety advocates and employers to voice their support, opposition, suggestions and concerns to OSHA directly for its review. Although far fewer Americans take advantage of commenting on proposed rules than they might if they better understood the process, those with access to this information should certainly comment on any proposed rules that they feel strongly about.

The larger implications of the Ralph Lauren signature scandal

When a well-known company takes a stand on a controversial issue, this action tends to either positively or negatively influence consumers’ perception of that company’s brand. As a result, businesses must often weigh the costs and benefits of taking a stand versus following standard practice. If a company takes a stand, it must generally be worth the ethical and financial risks of doing so.

Office safety measures are evolving in interesting ways

We frequently write about the hazards that many New York workers face on a daily basis. Construction workers, dock workers, delivery personnel and even hospital workers must consistently work to avoid being physically harmed on the job. We also note with some regularity that even office workers may be harmed on the job if certain precautions are not taken.
