Small Business Labor Safety (OSHA/MSHA) Roundtable

Next Small Business Labor Safety (OSHA/MSHA) Roundtable

Friday, March 20, 2015, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon



Dear Small Business Representatives:


We have scheduled the next Small Business Labor Safety (OSHA/MSHA) Roundtable for Friday, March 20, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.  

We are currently in the process of developing the agenda for the meeting, so please let me know if there are any issues you would like to discuss (particularly if you want to make a presentation).  A final Agenda for the Roundtable will be developed and circulated prior to the meeting.  Also, please note that because OSHA has publicly stated that it plans to convene a SBREFA panel for its “Process Safety Management (PSM) and Prevention of Major Chemical Accidents” rulemaking in the coming months, I plan to dedicate most or all of the agenda to this topic.

Please RSVP by reply email if you plan to attend the meeting.  A call-in option will also be available upon request.

The Office of Advocacy takes its direction from small businesses and hosts roundtables to receive input on what issues are of greatest importance.  We need your help, as representatives of small businesses, to set our priorities in the labor safety area.  Please join us as we review regulatory actions by OSHA and MSHA and discuss which issues are of key importance to small business.

I look forward to seeing you on the 20th.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or require additional information.



Roundtable meetings are open to all interested persons, with the exception of the press, in order to facilitate an open and frank discussion about small business-related issues.   Agendas and presentations are available to all, including the press.  Anyone who would like to receive roundtable agendas or presentations, or be included in the regular distribution, should forward such requests to  The purpose of these roundtable meetings is to exchange opinions, facts, and information and to obtain the attendees’ individual views and opinions regarding small business concerns.  The meetings are not intended to communicate or achieve any consensus positions of the attendees.


* We are located at the Federal Center SW Metro stop on the Orange and Blue lines.
