OSHA to revise requirements in safety and health standards

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final rule that revises 14 provisions in construction standards may be confusing, outdated or unnecessary.

OSHA says the revisions are expected to increase understanding and compliance with the provisions, improve employee safety and health and save employers an estimated $6.1 million per year.

OSHA proposed the changes in October 2016. This the fourth final rule under OSHA’s Standards Improvement Project, which began in 1995 in response to a Presidential memorandum to improve government regulations. Other revisions were issued in 1998, 2005, and 2011.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees.
