ASSP Joins With Other Groups in Supporting OSHA and NIOSH Funding for FY2024

Apr 17, 2023
ASSP, along with a long list of occupational safety-focused organizations including American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, Board for Global EHS Credentialing, International Safety Equipment Association and National Safety Council, recently submitted letters to leading members of the U.S. Senate and House Appropriations committees supporting the recommended FY2024 funding requests for OSHA ($738.7 million) and NIOSH ($375.3 million).

The groups cite current injury and fatality data as a key reason this funding must remain intact.

"On a typical day, over 11,500 U.S. workers sustain injuries on the job that are serious enough to require medical consultation; 12 workers die from an unintentional injury suffered at work," the groups note. "These tragedies cost an estimated $3.3 billion per week. These facts are all the more reason these important agencies require appropriate funding."
