Administration Program

The Administration Program of New Mexico OHSB is responsible for obtaining federal grants, administering the annual budget, preparing state and federal performance reports, gathering injury and illness data, purchasing of all equipment and supplies, and for providing general support to the members of the OHSB compliance and consultation programs.

New Mexico OHSB receives an annual grant from the Bureau of Labor Statistics dedicated to gathering and reporting injury and illness data in specific industries. The Administrative Program is responsible for fulfilling the obligations of this grant. The Administrative Program is also responsible for a similar project funded by federal OSHA for gathering and reporting all fatalities that occur while at work and reporting them by industry.

Technical support is provided by the Administrative Program to assist the Compliance and Consultation health and safety officers in the data entry of inspection information.

An annual State Internal Evaluation Program is conducted by the Administrative Program to identify areas of operation within the Bureau that need improvement.

For additional information contact the Administration Program Manager Debbie O’Dell via email  or 505-476-8715.
