New OSHA injury reporting standard challenged in court
from Bloomberg BNA
The new OSHA standard limiting safety incentive programs and enabling the agency to post online employers' injury and illness data was challenged July 8 in federal court by several employers groups (TEXO ABC/AGC v. Perez, N.D. Tex., No. 16-1998-D, complaint 7/8/16). The complaint was expected after numerous employer representatives spoke out against the standard following its May 12 release by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (81 Fed. Reg. 29,624). The requirements take effect Aug. 10.
