The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has announced two stakeholder meetings on Injury and Illness Prevention and invites interested parties to participate.

The discussions will be informal and will provide OSHA with the necessary information to develop a rule that will help employers reduce workplace injuries and illnesses through a systematic process that proactively addresses workplace safety and health hazards.

OSHA plans to use the information gathered at these meetings in developing an Injury and Illness Prevention Program proposed rule.

Dates and locations for the stakeholder meetings are:
     July 20, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in Washington, DC.
     August 3, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., in Sacramento, Calif.

Specific information on the location of each meeting can be found on the Injury and Illness Prevention Program Web site.

The deadlines for confirmed registration at each meeting are July 6 and July 20 respectively.
