OSHA Enforcement in Jeopardy

Date: March 17, 2017
Type: AFA Article

Tell your Senator that health and safety protections matter! OSHA enforcement is in jeopardy of being stripped out of our workplace altogether. The House of Representatives has already passed this bill.

The Senate is now considering the legislation and may vote on it as early as next week.

Late last year, the Obama administration formally reiterated a 45-year-old OSHA rule that companies must simply keep accurate injury records. Without these records, courts have found that OSHA cannot hold companies responsible for failing to keep records of workplace injuries and illnesses-essential information needed to improve workplace safety.

Unbelievably, the GOP is initiating an attack on these protections by dumping OSHA reporting and allowing companies to hide from their safety records! We can’t let this happen.

All that stands between a safe and unsafe workplace is us!

Call the Capitol Switchboard (202-224-3121) and tell your Senators to stand with working families and OPPOSE SJ. Res 27!
