ACA is dedicated to promoting occupational health and safety as a priority for its members.
In manufacturing, distribution, or chemical supply facilities there will be one or more employee designated as an Occupational Health & Safety expert. These employees are usually certified in industrial hygiene or a closely related field. Their responsibilities will center on the recognition, evaluation, and control of workplace hazards towards keeping facility employees safe from harm. This may include performing safety checks to make sure that personal protective equipment worn used by employees is worn correctly, implementing new state and federal workplace safety regulations designed to protect employees, and many other duties.
