Safety and Health

The Safety & Health Committee provides a strong framework for the entire organization, as it updates the group about current safety issues and upcoming challenges. On behalf of STI/SPFA, representatives from the Safety & Health Committee also participate in OSHA rule-making and serve on regulatory committees, such as ANSI, ASME, and ASSE.

The Safety & Health Committee meets at the Annual Meeting and Fall Conference, and at special times when the need arises (usually three times a year). Those at Member companies who have responsibility for safety, health and environmental matters should attend Safety & Health Committee meetings. During these meetings, problems and solutions are shared and educational sessions are conducted.
