HOUSE APPROVES “EMPLOYER-FRIENDLY” OSHA

The U.S. House of Representatives approved legislation that would make “employer-friendly” changes to OSHA. If passed by the U.S. Senate, employers would be granted more time to challenge OSHA citations. They would also gain the ability to recoup attorney fees if disputed citations are dismissed. Under the new legislation, the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission would grow from three to five members. Knowledgeable sources report that the bills are not expected to pass in the Senate. Pending legislation in committee in the Senate would instead expand OSHA worker protections.
