REGULATION NEWS & INFORMATION
New Labor Secretary arrives with commitment to workplace safety and health
E. Perez, nominated by President Obama as the nation's 26th Secretary
of Labor, was sworn in July 23. Previously assistant attorney general
for civil rights at the U.S. Department of Justice and secretary of
Maryland's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Perez brings
to the U.S. Department of Labor a commitment to ensure workers' rights
to safe and healthful workplaces, fair wages, more opportunity for

whistleblower and anti-discrimination laws, and more opportunity to

Join the campaign to prevent fatal falls in construction: New outreach resources available
are the leading cause of death in construction, accounting for one
third of all work-related deaths in the industry. To stop these
preventable tragedies, OSHA has partnered with the National Institute
for Occupational Safety and Health and the Center for Construction
Research and Training, kicking off a second year of the Campaign to
Prevent Fatal Falls.
In a new blog post, OSHA Director of Construction Jim Maddux discusses
the human and economic costs of falls, encouraging local employers,
stakeholders and community and faith-based organizations to join the
campaign to prevent falls. As he explains, "We know that the real
difference to be made is in the communities where workers are getting
hurt, and we can't do that alone."
To assist stakeholders in promoting the campaign and reducing fatal
falls in their local areas, CPWR also has a new guide (PDF*) on how to
launch a local initiative. The CPWR website has a number of campaign
resources including an interactive fatality map, training guides and
handouts, as well as information on how to sign on as a campaign
partner. To learn more about OSHA's Fall Prevention campaign, visit
www.osha.gov/stopfalls, and order or download fact sheets, posters, and
other educational materials—including a new wallet card in
Portuguese - by calling OSHA's Office of Communications at 202-693-1999
or visiting OSHA's Publications page.
OSHA and NIOSH issue hazard alert to warn of dangers of 1-bromopropane exposure
and NIOSH issued a hazard alert to encourage employers that use
1-bromopropane to take OSHA and NIOSH have issued a hazard alert to
urge employers that use 1-bromopropane to take appropriate steps to
protect workers from exposure. Exposure to 1-BP has been associated
with damage to the nervous system among workers, and it has been shown
to cause reproductive harm in animal studies. The chemical is used in
degreasing operations, furniture manufacturing, and dry cleaning. The
hazard alert is issued in response to information on the increased use
of 1-BP as a substitute for other solvents as well as recent reports of
overexposure in furniture manufacturing. For more information, read the
news release or hazard alert (PDF*). See NIOSH's 1- Bromopropane
blog for more information on the solvent.
