OSH Committee Chair Tom Skabry listens to a committee member’s report.

COMMACK — Our members’ safety on the job is of the utmost importance to CSEA, and our union’s occupational safety and health committees work hard toward safer workplaces.

The Long Island Region Safety and Health Committee recently met to discuss a variety of issues that affect our members at the workplace, including consequences for not complying with our state’s Public Employee Safety and Health (PESH) Law, ways safety and health can reach out to our Spanish-speaking members and a review of recent worksite incidents and how they can be prevented in the future.

If you believe there is a safety and health issue at your worksite, reach out to Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Specialist Jeff Hyman, who can be reached at the Long Island Region office at 631-462-0030. You can schedule an appointment with him to see if there are any existing or potential hazards.

In addition to working with members to address worksite issues, Hyman also regularly reviews his findings with the Long Island Region Safety and Health Committee members, who will weigh in on how to address any possible issues.
