AIHA Joins National Safety Council SAFER Task Force to Ensure Employee Safety Through the Pandemic

The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), announced that it will join the National Safety Council (NSC) task force to support the “SAFER: Safe Actions for Employee Returns” initiative, a comprehensive, multifaceted plan developed to guide employers through the process of safely resuming traditional work and operations now and after the pandemic.

In partnership with NSC, the nation’s leading nonprofit safety advocate, AIHA joins other Fortune 500 companies in leading safety organizations, public health professionals, and experts to prioritize worker safety and navigate the changed work environment.

“With SAFER, we are bringing the best minds together to ensure Americans have the safest transition back to work possible,” said Lorraine M. Martin, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “We are thrilled to have the partnership of AIHA to help us on our mission to make workplaces safer.”

Led by NSC, SAFER will issue recommendations and guidance for employers, including small and mid-size companies, across a variety of industries. From best practices to data-driven recommendations, the task force will provide employers the tools and solutions they need to act in complicated and challenging times, with simple, practical implementation resources.

“Worker health and safety is the center of everything we do at AIHA,” said AIHA president Kathy Murphy, “and we are looking forward to providing NSC with our best practices, expertise, tools, and solutions, so that worker safety continues to be an employer priority in a post-pandemic world.”
