New Publications Web Page Responds to Audience Needs

The US-American Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) late last
month unveiled a new Publications page on its Web site at www.osha.gov that
allows visitors to access OSHA's resources in an efficient and user friendly
way.

"The OSHA Publications page is one of the most popular pages on the agency's
Web site. In fact, the agency's Publications page receives more than 300,000
visits per month," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke,
Jr. "The page was redesigned in an effort to make the site's content easier to
access, while maintaining OSHA's commitment to providing valuable safety and
health materials."

OSHA undertook the redesign to give the Publications page a more user-friendly
look and feel, and to make the page the comprehensive resource for the agency's
extensive number of safety and health products. Visitors may now search by the
publication number or keyword; from an alphabetical listing; by industry or
topic, and by type of publication. In addition to new releases, the revamped
page highlights publications "Recommended by OSHA" that may interest visitors
and "Most Frequently Viewed OSHA Publications."

The new design is based on feedback from OSHA customers. Visitors may order up
to 25 copies of up to five publications using the new ordering capability. This
feature is similar to "shopping carts" found on commercial Web sites and helps
visitors keep track of the publications they are ordering and the number of
copies ordered.
