    In your newsletter you stated that there is an Advisory committee on S&H. Where is this committee? I’m sure you’ll see that this is just on paper.

    Also you stated that the Employment Safety Act was established in 1997. I found one from 1983…1983! I may be wrong, but I don’t believe enough is being done to legally manage OSH here. I can’t wait for the laws to be updated and enforced. All attempts to do this recently have been ignored or stalled.

    As a MPH student, I am particularly pleased to see Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) in focus. This is definitely an area that needs much attention on our island nation. There are so many measures (much of them inexpensive) which should be taken to protect vulnerable workers. I do plan on exploring the regulations, if any, which seeks to address the issues as they relate to workers here in Dominica.

    Thanks Jollys!
