Following Up on "Indiana Business Resource: The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOSHA)"
I got the following e-mail today from IOSHA in response to my post Indiana Business Resource: The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOSHA):
From time to time, your blogs about IOSHA and other IDOL divisions come to my attention. Thank you for your recent mention of our VPP program. We have 44 companies in Indiana (which may actually be up to 47 before another week is out), that are certified as VPP sites, and we use them as mentors, special employees to assist our department in reviewing new applicants for VPP, and simply as great news for the private sector and Indiana’s workers. We also have a program called INSharp, that helps companies become safer as well, but we offer more resources to the companies (and municipalities) than what is available with the Voluntary Protection Program. You are right that this is not the IOSHA of the past.
Finally, on Friday, we launched a new website that is more visually appealing, easier to use and will be the beginning of a more customer friendly and useful Department of Labor. You can access it at www.in.gov/labor. I invite you to take a look at it, and feel free to contact us at any time if we can offer you any assistance or information for your readers.
And, yes, the website looks better and appears easier to use.
