My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Massachusetts Coalition for Occupational Safety & Health, Inc., Dorchester, MA, USA
MassCOSH is an outstanding voice for the safety and health of working people. MassCOSH offers an opportunity for workers and those who are concerned about them, to get involved in making sure that people in Eastern MA can send their family members to work and welcome them home safely at the end of the day. The staff of this organization are not only extremely dedicated, but also creative and are always developing new ways to collaborate with others to provide assistance to the groups of people that need it the most. I have also always been impressed by the organization and management of this non-profit, the sharing of responsibilities among the staff, and the professional treatment given to staff at all levels of the organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Successful campaigns to protect workers' health, such as banning the sale of highly flammable floor finishing compounds that have killed people while working with them, and initiatives to improve working conditions for day laborers in MA.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would give occupational health and safety a line item in the state budget. MassCOSH would be a natural partner to help MA meet the needs of workers. Generally, I would make sure that they have the funding they need. This organization is efficient and uses their funding wisely.
