This month, the US Senate passed a joint resolution to disapprove of OSHA’s Final Rule to make accurate recordkeeping of workplace injury and illness an “ongoing obligation.”
Congress exercises its authority under the Congressional Review Act to disapprove of the rule. The resolution now moves on the President’s desk to be signed. If and when it is signed, the rule will be rescinded and “shall have no force of effect.” The President has already expressed support for this measure.
This will effectively reinstate the six-month time limit for OSHA to cite employers for failure to record injuries or illnesses.
See the Joint Resolution 83 here.
