SUGGESTED ACTION FOR LOCAL COMMUNITY LEADERS
 
If you would like to help TSHBI at your local level, there are three major areas where your involvement as a leader would make a difference:
 
1. ELEVATING LEVEL OF INTEREST in "telecommuting safety and health benefits" (TSHB).
 
-write legislators and express support for TSHB as a "new and very
effective way to improve safety and health throughout the state");
 
-write your Governor or other local leader and express your support for TSHB;
 
-raise TSHB issues in your meetings; and
 
-encourage colleagues, family, and friends to do the same.
 
 
2. PROMOTING TSHB TO EMPLOYERS (both government *and* private employers).
 
-identify or create a city/county/local entity with the responsibility for
encouraging and facilitating telecommuting (most likely that entity
could be one person or a small group of people);
 
-ask your Governor or other local leader to identify or create such an entity, as well; and
 
-contact city/county/state agency heads responsible for public safety,
occupational safety and health, traffic safety, public health, etc.,
and urge them to place "telecommuting" at the top of their priorities.
 
 
3. PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT to TSHBI.
 
-sponsor TSHBI's research and educational work (click here for
information about TSHBI);
 
-donate staff time to assist in our research and educational efforts; and
 
-link TSHBI website from your website(s) as a new information resource.
