Each year, millions of dollars of fines are issued by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). Some fines are issued due to willful violation, but most are issued because companies are struggling to understand the standards and how they apply to their organization. Northampton Community College’s Center for Business & Industry (CBI) will offer a free “Introduction to OSHA” program on Wednesday, April 1. Attendance certificates will be issued to participants who attend the entire program and complete an evaluation.
Would you like to know what the Brodhead Watershed Association (BWA) has found in your streams?
Pollution levels in the lower Brodhead watershed have made the streams unsafe for swimming or other water contact.
BWA will present a report to municipal partners and the community at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 31, at the Stroud Township Municipal Building on North Fifth Street.
The meeting will cover information regarding the health of the Brodhead, McMichael, and Pocono Creeks as they flow through the municipalities of Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg and Stroud Township. The BWA has received funding to track sources of the pollution and develop plans to reduce pollution in these streams.
