OSHA and small business group sign alliance
â€œSmall and independent businesses represent the vast majority of all employers in our country,â€ said OSHA chief John Henshaw. â€œBy working with NFIB, we can reach more business owners, managers and workers to promote workplace safety and health.â€
OSHA and NFIB will develop and promote accessible and user-friendly tools to encourage and help small business owners create and implement effective safety and health management programs in the workplace.
The National Federation of Independent Business is a small business advocacy group with 600,000 members.
