The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) is honored to have worked with Texas State House Representative Dr. Greg Bonnen (R-24)​, who introduced House Bill 2010, along with State Senator Larry Taylor (R-11), who chairs the Senate Education Committee. The bill, which was signed into law on June 9, 2017 by Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R), encourages school districts and educators to include workplace safety training information in the curriculum of appropriate courses for students in Grades 7–12.

 

AIHA CEO Larry Sloan urges members to contact their Congressional representatives and Senators about the importance of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) final rule to protect workers from exposure to respirable crystalline silica.

On February 15, 2017, AIHA held a congressional briefing in Washington, DC about the rule.​​
