OSHA Update

By: David W. Willis, Esq.

On January 25th the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced it had temporarily withdrawn from review by the Office of Management and Budget its proposal to restore a column for work-related musculoskeletal disorders on employer injury and illness logs. OSHA stated this action was undertaken in an effort to obtain more input from small businesses on the impact of the proposal. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, these types of conditions accounted for 28% of all reported workplace injuries and illnesses resulting in lost time in 2009. According to OSHA it plans to hold a meeting with the U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy to "engage and listen to small businesses" about the agency's proposal. See www.OSHA.gov for more information.
