OSHA Chief Vows to Continue Past Policies

Jonathan Snare, acting assistant secretary of labor for OSHA, affirmed that OSHA will continue to expand voluntary programs while maintaining "strong, fair and effective enforcement."

Speaking March 2 in one of his first public speeches since taking the helm at OSHA, Snare addressed the midwinter meeting of the American Bar Association's Occupational Safety and Health committee being held in Key West, Fla.

"OSHA is committed to expanding education, outreach and compliance assistance," Snare told conference attendees.

As evidence of this commitment, Snare cited the $1 million increase for state compliance assistance programs in the president's proposed 2006 budget.
