harryreid1-150x150-9598908-1390580WASHINGTON, D.C.–Sen. Harry Reid made the following statement today in recognition of Occupational Safety and Health Week, which runs from May 2 to May 8:

“In addition to being one of the fastest growing states, Nevada is home to one of the largest construction industries in the nation,” Reid said.

“We must continue to improve and enforce safety measures that ensure a safe working environment at all times. Fatal accidents are not acceptable. By following tighter regulations, our state’s workplaces will adopt safer work practices, resulting in fewer accidents and less spending for accident and injury cases. The end result is more funding available to put Nevadans back on the job in a safe working environment.”
