NAM to Labor Department: OSHA Injury and Illness Proposed Rule Still Falls Short
The National Association of Manufacturers called on the Labor Department to make further improvements to its Tracking of Workplace Injuries and Illnesses rule. The rule proposes getting rid of some of the forms employers must file with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, the proposal would not fix several major problems. The NAM argued that OSHA’s final rule should guarantee confidentiality of any reported information as well as provide certainty and clarity around employers’ ability to maintain safe workplaces through incentive programs and post-accident drug testing.
