David Michaels Assistant Secretary of Labor for the Occupational Health and Safety Administration OSHA and John Howard, director of the National Institute of Health NIOSH both spoke and took questions at the 2013 National Worker Safety and Health conference that was held on December 11, 2013 in Baltimore, Maryland. Michaels reported that there are only 2,000 Federal OSHA inspectors for entire country and that workers are fearful to report health and safety problems because of retaliation. Howard reported that new NIOSH studies show that nanotech particles can cause cancer and he is concerned that there will be another health epidemic similar to asbestos but caused by the introduction on nanotech particles without proper oversight and regulation. The guidelines of NIOSH are voluntary. http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2014-102/ For more video of conference: The Fight For Health And Safety in The UK With Hilda Palmer UK National Hazards Campaign http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBOX39...
