Event Name: Stakeholder Meeting to Consider Proposed Standard to Protect Safety, Health of Emergency Responders
Description: OSHA issued a Request for Information on Sept 11, 2007, that requested comments from the public to evaluate what action, if any, the agency should take to further address emergency response and preparedness. Recent events, including the West, Texas, explosion that killed several emergency responders, and additional information gathered in response to the RFI show that responder health and safety continues to be an area of ongoing concern. The meeting will not include formal presentations but instead will be conducted as a group discussion. OSHA will focus on issues such as scope and approach surrounding emergency response and preparedness.
