American Apparel & Footwear Association Renews Alliance with OSHA

An Alliance between the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) was renewed today that aims to continue building on successes to help reduce workplace injuries and illnesses in the apparel and footwear industry, with a particular focus on ergonomics. The Alliance was first signed in February 2003.

"We're pleased that AAFA wants to continue working with us to make information on ergonomics best practices more widely available and to further strengthen safety and health in their industry," said Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Jonathan L. Snare. "Together, we will continue to use our collective expertise to help foster a culture of prevention, especially for ergonomic related injuries."
