      NH COSH Meeting with
      Senator Maggie Hassan

      NH COSH and GSOP members meet with Senator Maggie Hassan

      This June, NH COSH Board members Mark MacKenzie and Samantha Wooten joined staff members Brian Mitchell and Susi Nord for a great informative meeting with Senator Hassan. NH COSH also invited our community partner, Granite State Organizing Project to join us. Together we shared our concerns about current trends at the Federal Department of Labor that have been rolling back safety protections for working men and women. Samantha was especially eloquent when telling the Senator about her father's death on the job last year. Senator Hassan said she strongly supports workplace protections and supports full funding for OSHA. Thank you Maggie!
