OK, here we are, welcome to 2019.
What’s making news in workplace safety and health? The feds find Kentucky’s state OSHA plan fails to meet required standards. NASA is to launch safety reviews of SpaceX and Boeing, with a focus on company culture, supposedly sparked by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk taking a hit of marijuana and sipping whiskey on a podcast streamed on the Internet. Amazon is accused of treating fulfillment center associates as disposable. The voluntary ISO 45001 occupational safety and health management system standard bandwagon and associated money-making machinations gets up steam after being finalized last year. As we go to press, OSHA still lacks a permanent political appointee to head the agency.
