The National Association of Emergency and Fire Officials (NAEFO) will partner with Moore EMS Consulting to present details on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OHSA) proposed Emergency Response Standard – which could fundamentally transform administration of local fire and ambulance services.

Join Scott Moore, an attorney and Human Resources Consultant with Moore EMS Consulting, on Wednesday, June 12, for a thorough 90-minute overview of the proposed rule, which would overhaul the 44-year-old Fire Brigade Standard ahead of its public comment deadline on June 21, 2024.

Scott will cover the proposed rule’s new requirements which would likely include additional administrative obligations job-related training, physical and mental health initial and ongoing assessments for emergency response employees. While the proposed rule has not been finalized, it is clear that OSHA is committed to addressing the safety in EMS organizations.

OSHA’s standards apply to all private employers across the nation, but 28 states hold Federal OSHA-approved plans requiring local governments – including special districts providing fire protection, ambulance, and emergency services.

NAEFO invites the board members of the nation’s emergency services organizations to join us and learn more about the potential impacts of this significant proposed rule.

NAEFO will provide comment to OSHA on behalf of its members ahead of the June 21 deadline and is committed to making sure our Members are informed on this important topic in administration and first responder safety as news develops.
