Be Compliant, Not Complacent
Among the top health and safety tips that we received from industry professionals on avoiding HIOSH and OSHA fines and penalties are these from the ABC's Jonathan Young:
1. "Never cut corners. No amount of cost-cutting is worth a person's life."
2. "Constantly think about safety. Safety should be your most important objective."
3. "Keep in contact with OSHA and HIOSH. They love to come and give you advice and help. Their main objective is your safe workplace."

The Kalihi-Palama Health Center (KPHC) has begun construction on its new $9 million center for comprehensive women and children's health programs. The general contractor is Robert M. Kaya Builders.
A ground blessing ceremony on Feb. 20 also honored the work of the late Loretta Fuddy, director of the State Department of Health, with a grant from the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation in honor of her legacy.
Serving more than 20,000 patients annually, KPHC is a provider of health and social services to patients who typically face significant barriers to health care access.
