EventAIHA-RMS and ASSE-CO Legislative Outreach: Introducing ‘Safety Matters’ to Local Legislators

Description: AIHA Rocky Mountain Section and ASSE Colorado Chapter are proud to co-host this event in which we will introduce ‘Safety Matters’ to local state legislators. ‘Safety Matters’ is an AIHA and NIOSH-developed program to raise awareness among young people about workplace safety and health and to provide an understanding of the skills they need to become active participants in creating safe and healthy work environments. We have asked for and confirmed the attendance of at least two state legislators local to Fort Collins and Boulder for this event. Our organizations are specifically asking these legislators to support the introduction of legislation to make available the ‘Safety Matters’ workplace safety training to local school districts and to incorporate it into the curriculum of 7th-12th grade students in Colorado. We would like AIHA-RMS members to attend this event to demonstrate our support for this legislation in our state. We are hosting this event at two locations simultaneously (details below) and will be connected via teleconference, so please attend the location that is most convenient for you! We will be asking for a headcount of people who might come to each location, so be on the lookout for an RSVP email from us in the near future to respond to if you think you will able to attend and lend your support!
