On Nov. 7, 2009, 160 worker safety and health advocates gathered in Philadelphia for a one day Summit to develop common priorities and strategies for national policy changes that would make our nation’s workplaces safer. The result of these discussions was a set of recommendations covering several themes: Ergonomics, Family Rights, Farmworkers, Green Jobs Health and Safety, Immigrant Workers, OSHA Reform/the Protecting America’s Workers Act , Toxic Chemicals, and
