The Spokane Tribe is proud to announce the launch of its Tribal Occupational Safety and Health Administration program.
The goal of the program is to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. In addition to this, TOSHA is committed to protecting workers from toxic chemicals and fatal safety hazards at work, ensuring that vulnerable workers in high-risk jobs have access to critical information and education about job hazards, and providing employers with vigorous compliance assistance to promote best practices that can save lives. The Tribe hopes to create a safer place of work for the employees of the Tribe, and to ensure that steps are taken whenever possible to prevent work related illnesses and injuries.
Reggie Peone Jr. will be serving as the Tribes' TOSHA representative. The TOSHA Office can be reached at 509-458-6573. This is a new and exciting time for the Spokane Tribe and we remain optimistic that the program will be of great benefit to the Tribes' employees, its land, and its people.
