Immunizations are NOT just for kids! Regardless of your age, we ALL need immunizations to help keep us healthy. Vaccines reduce the risk of infection by working with the body’s natural defenses to help it safely develop immunity to disease. Take a few minutes to protect yourself and others from diseases.
Keep track of your and your family’s vaccinations as they’re received.
Make an appointment with your and your family’s doctor to make sure vaccinations stay up-to-date.
OSHA announced it is delaying enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions in its new Injury and illness tracking rule to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers. Originally scheduled to begin August 10, 2016, enforcement will now begin November 1, 2016, according to the agency.
Under the rule, employers are required to:
Inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation; Implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable and do not deter workers from reporting; and
Incorporate the existing statutory prohibition on retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.
