GETTING TO ZERO! IT'S A TEAM EFFORT - GET INVOLVED!
The OSHA Omaha Area Office has recently launched a new initiative, aimed at reducing workplace fatalities in the State of Nebraska. The initiative is referred to as "Getting to Zero", with the intention of Nebraskan's working for 365 consecutive days without a fatal accident occurring.
